Sports Teams

The College has a number of non-academy sports teams in various college and university sports leagues, which compete in matches across the country. We have teams in women’s rugby, women’s football, men’s football, basketball, and hockey, netball, shooting and equine. Games are played on a Wednesday afternoon in the Association of Colleges (AoC) Sports and BUCS leagues, with training sessions taking place during the week.

We want you to join in as Bishop Burton continues to build one of the fastest growing sporting reputations. Don’t miss out on being a part of Team Bishop Burton – We have opportunities for everyone to get involved #OneBishop.

It provides an opportunity for all students to try something new , get active and have fun in a relaxed and informal environment on campus.
