Students are an extensive part of Worcester’s sporting community, and there are plenty of opportunities for you to attend some of the most exciting live sports events in the UK.

With the University-owned Worcester Wolves basketball team playing in the top-flight of the BBL league, you can get behind the Wolves and make some noise with the wolfpack at home games at the University Arena on Friday nights. If you can’t make it down to the Arena, you’ll find lots of our basketball and netball matches are covered on Sky Sports.

The University Arena was also the training ground for Great Britain's wheelchair basketball squads as they prepared for the Paralympics in Rio 2016.

"The University of Worcester Arena is not only a fantastic venue to train in, it’s a great place to showcase international competitions."

University sporting achievements

Many of the teams at the University of Worcester compete nationally in British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues, and consistently set new records each year. In 2013, the Ladies’ football club were crowned champions following their success on the pitch at the BUCS Conference Cup, while a member of the American Football team received a prestigious male athlete of the year award.

As one of the first universities to establish a wheelchair basketball team, the University of Worcester strives to encourage and support participation at every level, and offer the country's first sports coaching science degree specialising in disability sport.

We also support students wishing to set up alternative clubs, such as ultimate frisbee, snowsports, trampolining, and horse riding.
