Join in, get active and find your fit.

Find where you belong, whether it’s representing the university in a sports team, making new friends on the playing field, turning pro or just trying an activity for the first time. Our mission is to offer everybody the opportunity to join in and to get active, regardless of ability.

Healthy bodies power healthy minds and getting involved in physical activity will really lift your student experience.

So whatever your goal...

Welcome to the Squad!​​​​​


Engage: HertSquad Active Students

Active Students is so much more than traditional sport. It’s a great way for you to meet new people and experience something for the first time, whilst having fun and staying healthy. All activities are free and you can turn up when you want – no sign up, no commitment, no cost.

So if you want a break from studying, want to see what’s going on around campus or want to meet some new people, then join us at a session.


Compete: HertSquad Campus Sport

If you like your sport competitive but want to keep it on campus then Campus Sport is for you. It’s not just getting involved. It’s sport for those with a hunger to compete. There are competitive leagues and regular one-off competitive tournaments in a range of sports.
