University of Essex - Sports Question

I put Essex as my firm choice recently because I really liked the vibe of the Uni, and they had a lot of benefits compared to the others (Surrey, Aston & QMUL [my insurance despite it being my highest offer]). I really like the sports opportunities and facilities @Essex and I wanted to know; are you able to join multiple sports teams? I love football but wanted to join Tennis, American Football and Basketball. Let me know and despite Essex's offer being my lowest offer (From BBC to CCC/96 Points [I went to the offer holder day]), I still really want to go. That last point was irrelevant but oh well.

Hiya @aaroninho!
Congratulations on our offer!

At Essex you are welcome to join multiple sports teams.
Some teams they are professional so you do have to pass a trail and than you will have multiple games thought the year with different institutions.

Other teams you can join put they are not professional so foe example if you want to play football you have the professional team and the amateurs team. It really depends on the intensity you want to play.
