Sport for NTU staff

At NTU, we're as committed to providing sport and fitness opportunities to our valued members of staff. We've created a timetable of sports sessions that allows you to have fun, unwind, socialise and keep fit around your work schedule. So why not step away from your desk and come along for a game today?

Did you know all members of staff have the chance to take part organised sports sessions every weekday lunchtime? You don't need to book and there's no charge. Just turn up and play.

Squash and tennis leagues

We run monthly squash and tennis staff leagues  over the summer months. There is no entry fee – you just need to email us with your name and what league you’d like to be involved in.

You do not need to play at the Clifton Campus sports facilities, but obviously these are the best, so why would you want to go elsewhere? All normal court hire fees apply so if you already have a gym membership with us, you can enjoy more free use of our courts!

Squash league

  • Three tiers of league to match your playing level against others of similar standard
  • Open classification, and Women's classification
  • No equipment provided, but all available on hire from NTU sports facilities
  • Weekly emails with league tables updates and scores included.

Tennis league

  • Three tiers of league to match your playing level against others of similar standard
  • Men’s Singles, Men’s Doubles, Women’s Singles, Women’s Doubles, Mixed Doubles classifications
  • No equipment provided, but all available on hire from NTU sports facilities
  • Weekly emails with league tables updates and scores included

Each league will take place over one calendar month, and all games need to take place within that month. It will be down to the players to arrange games against the other people in that league, and to update the score to NTU Sport. Any games not played (or unreported) by the deadline on each league will be void and no points awarded.

At the end of each month, the players at the top of the league will be promoted into the league above, and players at the bottom of the league relegated. Should sufficient demand exist, multiple leagues in the relevant tiers will be created, and a playoff for the top players arranged.

Golf

Staff can access coaching sessions and discounted membership at Ruddington Grange Golf club.

Golf coaching

We run a programme of summer golf coaching for the improving golfer or those who want the chance to learn. Anyone can play, and everyone can improve. We’ll provide the equipment and the instructor, you just bring yourself along.

Details for the 2019 season are yet to be announced.

Golf club membership

NTU staff can get half price golf memberships at Ruddington Grange Golf club. All you have to do is show your staff card when purchasing at the club. To find out more contact Lawrence Uttley.
