Staff Sport

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, just turn up and play. The sessions are free for staff members with an Active Membership, or £2 for non-members.
