Getting involved in a sports club is an ideal way to keep fit, learn a new skill, meet people with similar interests, as well as provide a welcome break from academic life. UCD sports clubs are for the most part student-run and student-led, so you can play your sport and if you wish also lead and develop your club. With nearly 60 sports clubs to choose from, ranging from team sports, adventure sports, water sports to martial arts, there is something for everyone!
