Start A Club

have you got a great idea for a sports club? we want to hear from you.

At your SU, we are working constantly to develop new and exciting sporting opportunities. We want to expand our offer based on student interest, and that means that we want to hear from you. Whatever your idea may be, we'd love to explore the possibilities and work together to offer more to our students! If you have an idea, drop us an email at


what should i plan for?

Starting a new club can feel like a big challenge at the beginning, so it's always best to be as prepared as possible. Here are some tips to get you started:

1. Meet other students: 

Starting a sports club can be a lot easier if you have a couple of friends or class-mates interested in the same sport as you.

2. See what is on offer locally:

Is there a local club for your preferred sport? Could you contact them for advice? Where/when do they train?

3. Think logistically:

Is your sport one that we could facilitate with relative ease here at the University of Suffolk? What equipment and facilities are needed?

We can look to introduce a BUCS compettive team

To do this we would then need a committee
