The Athletic Union (Sports)
The Athletic Union (AU) is the body that supports all sporting activity at your Students’ Union. We support students that run over 40 sports clubs including team and individual sports, outdoor and water sports and martial arts.
If you’re interested in getting involved in our sports teams, you’ll find a number of opportunities available to you such as competing in the British Universities & Colleges Sport Leagues (BUCS), coaching courses, officiating, volunteering or just being a supporter. All our clubs are run by students so being on a club committee would mean that you are helping with the running of the AU which looks great on your CV. If you find that the sport you’re interested in isn’t currently offered, your AU will support you to set it up.
Towards the end of the academic year we have our annual Varsity vs Northampton University, Old Boys & Girls Weekend and the Team Derby Sports Awards. This is where we celebrate the achievements of our sports teams and individuals, from both Derby and Buxton campuses.
