The GSA Officers made a decision to fully fund sports sessions in a number of different sports to allow all of York’s postgraduate community the opportunity to unwind and relax as well as getting some exercise in!

The emphasis of the fully funded sessions is one of ‘sport for all’ and to this end, the sessions are non competitive. For those who want to play competitive sports, all postgraduates are eligible to represent Wentworth college in the college sports leagues. All students can also represent the University at sporting activities and this is run through York Sport.

Feel free to look through all the sports that we currently fund and turn up to any sports session you like the look of! If your sport is not mentioned and you wish the GSA to look into the possibilities of starting sessions please contact the VP Wellbeing and Community at
