UON Sport and Physical Activity

Sport at UON

At the University of Northampton, we provide a diverse range of high-quality sporting services for students, staff, and the public, always striving to be at the heart of Northampton sport.

For those wanting to stay fit and enjoy the social benefits of sport participation, we have a great range of offers available through UON Active Campus, and gym and swimming pool facilities provided through our partnership with Trilogy Leisure. Our student sports clubs also provide free opportunities across a wide range of sports.

Anyone wanting to compete to a high standard is well catered for at the university. Our Super Teams programme provides additional multidisciplinary sport science support to help our student-athletes enhance their sport performance, whilst our Elite Athlete Scholarship programme provides world class support available to help develop our talented student-athletes to compete at the highest level of Northampton sport, as well as nationally, and internationally.

We offer opportunities for public access to our sports lab services, sports injury rehab clinic, and sports facilities.

You can contact us by email UONsport@northampton.ac.uk and follow us at Instagram and X.
