Sports and AT

The unit participates and trains in many sports including rugby, netball, and hockey.

Sports can take many forms from training and general practise, games against university teams or competitions with the Officer Training Corps (OTC) or the University Air Sqaudron (UAS).

Sports culminate in February at the annual URNU Sports Weekend in Portsmouth where all 14 University Naval Units gather for a weekend of sports and socialising. The weekend is one of the highlights of the unit calendar and competition is tense to see who will return home victorious!

The unit also participates in Adventure Training (AT) and this takes the form of many things from hill walking up snow capped hills and mountains to skiing in the Scottish Highlands!
