Get Active

Get Active is our recreational sports programme available to Queen Mary students, staff, and alumni. Whether you want to try something new or continue with one of your favourite sports with no commitment required, Get Active is the best place to do so in a fun, social and relaxed environment. We offer turn up and play sessions, structured courses, one-off events and much more! No specialist equipment or clothing is required to take part.

Get Active is a great way to stay fit, meet new people and make new friends, so get involved and give it a go!

During Semester 1 we will be offering; archery, badminton, couch to 5k course, fencing, table tennis, well-being walks, volleyball and the running group.

Important: Friday 16th October: Get Active & Social Leagues update

Unfortunately, with the change to London moving into Tier 2 from Saturday at 00.01am, this means that our Get Active and Social League indoor sessions which were due to start on Monday will have to be paused – we are sorry for the late notice on this, but the government announced this on Thursday with the new restrictions having to come into effect from Saturday morning.

"Organised individual and team sports taking place indoors must be played only by a single household or a single support bubble" – Sport England.

We are looking to see if we can find alternative solutions to allow some form of sessions to go ahead safely and within the new restrictions, so please keep an eye out for any updates.
