University sports facilities - Tyndall Avenue Sports Centre, University swimming pool and Coombe Dingle Sports Complex

‌Fresh Sport is a fresh chance to find a sporting opportunity that is right for you, whether you want to train hard and compete, make new friends, or keep active and feel good. Fresh Sport is your first taste of the action and an introduction to the world of club and team sport at the University of Bristol.  In 2016 over 1200 students took part in the events, getting involved in sports they had a log association with or trying something completely new.  The events showcase the range of student-led sporting opportunity at the University and help you make a flying start to your sporting life at Bristol.

Early registration is now closed.  If you are interested in getting involved please go along and meet the clubs at Welcome Fair on Friday 22nd September.

On Sunday 24th September at Coombe Dingle Sports Complex we will also be hosting a marquee of sports clubs promoting their activities.  Even if you are not taking part in a sport on the day we encourage you to come along and see what is on offer.  There will be a subsidised BBQ available, with drinks available for purchase on site too. The site is sprawling so check out the event layout for an idea of where to go.
