Play for fun

NTU Sport offers something for everyone, whether you're a beginner, want to get back into a sport you love without the commitment, or just want an alternative to the gym, there’s an activity for you.

Play for Fun

Playing sport doesn't have to mean a big, long-term commitment, we run regular Play for Fun sessions that focus on making sport sociable, inclusive and enjoyable.

There's no requirement to join a club, all sessions must be booked in advance on the NTU Sport App.

How to book your Play for Fun session

Simply go to the NTU Sport app and click on the the Play for Fun tile and select your session from the timetable.

Cancelling your Play for Fun Session

If you are unable to attend your booked session, please cancel your selected Play for Fun  activity on the NTU Sport App.

Play for Fun rewards

As well as meeting new friends, you can also earn rewards to give you that extra bit of motivation. Sign in at every session you attend, and start earning your rewards now. You just need to attend 20 sessions to earn your free Play for Fun branded t-shirt.

20 sessions = a black or pink Play for Fun T-shirt
