It's easy. Just follow the link below to complete the process online.

There’s opportunities at the start of each term to attend a free taster session for your chosen sport. Click here to see a full timetable of when these sessions take place. Following the taster sessions you’ll need a sports club membership if you wish to continue attending training sessions and to represent ARU in competition.

This year, due to the disruption caused by COVID-19 and the uncertainty surrounding the BUCS competition programme, we’ve made some temporary changes to the sports club membership.

The membership fee will be £30 for the 2020/21 academic year, which will include:

  • Membership of a sports clubs – you can join up to two additional clubs for just £15 each
  • Endsleigh Elite Personal Accident Insurance
  • Access to training and facilities
  • Access to coaching (where the club has a coach)

This membership fee recognises that there may disruptions to training caused by further Government announcements and that in some sports capacities are limited, which may impact your ability to attend every session.

Due to social distancing guidelines, memberships are only available online and cannot be purchased on campus.* If you’re joining more than one club, these need to be completed in separate transactions.
