    Uni Sports Clubs:

    The majority of sports are run by the AU

    Athletic Union Clubs: http://www.lufbra.net/au/auclubs/

    Some are run by Societies

    Students Union Societies: http://www.lufbra.net/societies/socslist/

    For either of these links, simply click on the sport you are interested in.

    The training for most sports is intense. Expect to be committing 3 days a week to training and 1 to games MINIMUM.



    IMS:

    Is a competitive league between halls where "IMS Points" are awarded for wins.

    The main sports teams (Rugby, Football, Netball, Hockey) are generally made up of those who have played before and either didn't make the uni team, or don't have the time for Uni Level sport.

    The remainder of IMS sports tend to be taken less seriously and pretty much anyone can have a go.

    You will never know if you're good enough unless you try.



    "I've heard Loughborough is really sporty!/Will I fit in if I don't play a sport?/Is everyone there an Athlete?"

    Loughborough is the top university in the country for sports. Fact.

    This means that a lot of people here are high standard Athletes.

    This doesn't mean that the majority are.

    You will not be kicked out or ostracised for not playing a sport.

    You will see people who will be 10 times fitter/stronger/bigger than you.

    These people are (generally) human beings.

    No-one will force you to play a sport.

    You can go your whole 3/4 years here without playing a sport, and trust me, many people do just this.



    What about gyms? I want to get massive/get fit/lose weight!!!

    There are two Main Gyms on Campus, these are LUFS (loughborough university fitness suite) and Powerbase (known as Base)

    LUFS
    Normal gym.
    Has a freeweights section
    Selection of Resistance Machines
    Stretching area
    Treadmills, X-Trainers, Steppers, Bikes, etc
    Sauna
    Spa pool
    Steam Room


    POWERBASE
    The professional athlete's gym of choice
    Conditioning central
    Split in to "Elite" and "Public" open times.
    If you're not sure if you should be going here, you shouldn't.


    There are also gyms in the Swimming Pool, Gymnastics Centre and HIPAC (HIgh Performance Athletics Centre) however these are for the users of those centres and you cant buy membership just to their gyms.

    Off campus, there is a Council Run Leisure Centre, and a Fitness First, as well as a couple of other gyms.

    Sounds awesome... how much?

    Prices for Gym and Pool

    Base £230 per year
    LUFS £170 per year
    Pool £105 per year, or £2.50 per session

    Base and Pool £280
    LUFS and Pool £225

    Your hall may have some gear. People generally use their own stick, but you dont need fancy kit for IMS.

    The courts are all available to hire. You need your own stuff and the cost is around £6 or £7 for an indoor court, about £3/£4 for outdoor.

    The Uni has several teams (i think up to 4ths + freshers squad?)

    However if you don't get on to the uni team you can play for your hall in the IMS league.
