Five measures have been used to determine the frequency of participation in sport. Based on these measures, two thirds of students participate in any sport activity (65%), with about half of these (32%) participating in high levels of sport activity (3x30 minutes); 29% of all students participated in sport using university provision. Those living in university halls were more likely to use only university provision. Convenience of local facilities was the main reason cited for not using university provision. 

Over a third of students were a member of a club, society or organisation to participate in sport (36%), with fewer having received tuition (26%); or taken part in organised competition over the previous year (22%). Students doing 3 x 30 minutes were more likely to have been involved in these activities, as were students who used university sports provision. Five per cent of students had taken part in one hour a week or more of sports volunteering. This was higher among those doing 3 x 30 minutes and those who did any sport through their university. 

Overall, half of students who participated in university sport were very satisfied with university sport provision (47% rating their satisfaction as between 8 and 10 on a 10 point scale). So why not come along to one of our student only sessions based at both Birmingham City University or  University College Birmingham. The sports on offer include Basketball, Netball, Hockey,Table Tennis,Volleyball,Cricket
