We provide the University community with opportunities to participate in sporting competitions and recreational activities. 

From beginners and social sport players through to elite athletes, we have sport programs to suit all levels of interest and abilities. These include:

  • regular sporting competitions
  • recreational activities
  • just kicking a ball around with your classmates!

Check out the number of competitions you can join as a team or an individual, and find out how you can become more active with a range of free on campus social sessions. 

Campus social sport sessions

We believe that being active during a busy day is beneficial to both mental and physical health and can help you achieve your full potential.

Across our campuses, VU Sport offers free opportunities to get active and make new friends in a comfortable and social environment. There is equipment for a variety of sports to select from, so there is something for everyone! 

Current sessions

Footscray Nicholson Campus 
Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Time: 11.40am - 12.40pm
Location: Building D, Level 5 

In the past we have offered social sport sessions at most of our VU campuses; however, during this time, we currently provide limited opportunities. We are looking to bring back the fun to Sunshine Campus and Footscray Park Campus in the near future so keep your eyes peeled.
