What are clubs?
Clubs are groups of students who share a passion for sport and come together to play friendlies, compete locally and nationally, or participate in socials.
All of our listed clubs are part of the Athletics Union where you can join in with a host of different social events, fundraising opportunities and campaigns such as LSESU This Girl Can.
There is something for everyone, from beginners with an interest in trying something new, to top-level athletes competing in BUCS and LUSL.
Our LSESU sports clubs are student led by fantastic club committee members who are elected by their peers. You'll find all training resources and guidance on reimbursements, funding, promotion and more on the Committee Hub.
If you have any questions, please contact the Sports and Recreation Manager, Grace, on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The AU Exec represents all AU Club members. The Exec consists of the AU President, AU Engagement Officer and 4 general AU Exec members and they are all elected by LSE students. They work closely with the Activities & Development Officer and the SU to develop sport at LSE, support AU communities and lead on the organisation of AU events. Before you become a member of an AU Sports Club, you need to purchase an AU Membership which allows you to be part of all AU activities.
