Leicester is a city with a proud and wide-ranging history of sport. Discover your new team and adopt them as your own, whether you're into football, basketball, hockey or beyond.
There’s also a variety of sports and leisure facilities so you can try your hand at a new activity or join in with a sport you’ve always loved.
As well as professional teams and leagues to enjoy, Leicester also provides plenty of opportunity for you to get involved in a sport or take up a new exercise.
As a student at the Global Study Centre, you’ll have access to all the sport and fitness facilities at the University of Leicester, including two fully equipped sports centres, both with pools, outdoor playing fields, and squash courts.
Outside of the university, the city itself offers several options for gyms, pools, and sports venues. Active Leisure, an initiative by Leicester council, runs a number of gyms, pools, leisure centres, and even a golf course.
