The sport societies are very well organised and are a great platform to meet new people.

Taking part in sport at university is a great way to keep fit, make friends and generally have a good time. Queen Mary Students’ Union has over 40 sports clubs ranging from Aikido to Hockey, Fencing to Rowing.
The Students’ Union has recently undergone a multi-million pound refurbishment, so in addition to the sports hall and squash court, there’s a brand new Health and Fitness Centre, QMotion. QMotion is home to a whole range of gym equipment including a cardiovascular zone, a resistance zone, and free weights. You can use these facilities with the expert advice of fully trained gym instructors. There’s also a women-only gym area, as well as yoga and pilates classes. Membership for the Health and Fitness Centre is at subsidised low rates for students.
Visit the Student Union website for more details of sports teams and societies.
