“Playing sports for LUBS is a fun and sociable way to meet other students whilst keeping fit and competing against other societies in intermural leagues if you wish to. LUBS sports is open to anyone in the society and we currently have a netball, football and rugby team. There is always something happening with LUBS sports with regular sports socials and training sessions as well as everything already going on in LUBS, it really is a fabulous thing to be apart of." - Ellie Stroud LUBS Society Female Sports Secretary 2016/17

At LUBS, there's the added opportunity to play for our football or netball teams, where we compete against top University squads all over the UK. Last year, the football team were in the Top 5 of the University Society Leagues and were successful in hosting many social gatherings for their team members. If you’re interested in joining, during freshers we'll be holding two "Give it a go" events so make sure you come along!
