Men’s Hockey

“I chose to play men’s hockey here at the RAU for the team ethos – it’s a great way to meet like-minded people and kick-start your University career. We’ve been playing at a very high standard – competing with (and beating!) some much larger universities than our own. We also have some great team socials.”



“Netball at the RAU seemed like the natural transition to take following sixth form and I’m pleased I took it. The sports fair at the start of the year gave the first glimpse of the attitude taken by players: relaxed, fun, and friendly. Travelling to matches is always a great chance to catch up with the rest of the girls, alongside Wednesday night socials.”



“I joined shooting as I’d had a go previously, really enjoyed it, and wanted the chance to get better. It’s lovely participating in an outdoor activity, allowing you the chance to get out and have some fresh air after lectures on a Wednesday. It’s a must-do country sport for a country university!”



“The rowing club is going from strength to strength. We train on the water at least twice a week and on land three to five days a week. The rowing club is a lively group of hard-working, confident athletes who endeavour to enjoy regular team socials and big wins.”



“I chose to play lacrosse here at the RAU for the camaraderie. I wanted to be part of a team of like-minded people in order to represent the University and to take my school days of playing lacrosse to a more advanced level.”



“I enjoyed learning a new sport and competing against other universities in a friendly atmosphere. The croquet club offers good social opportunities, and is a great way to relax and meet new people.”
