Intramural leagues

Play in a fun, yet semi-competitive league which are regularly officiated by qualified referees. Enter a team from your hall, course, group of friends, or join as an individual and we will try and put you in a team.

League details

  • If you enter a team from your hall, let us know who you are representing as your results will count towards a UWE Bristol central halls league.
  • Teams will usually have one match per week, but there may be occasions where they have two matches or a rest week.
  • Please book early to secure your spot in the league. There will be a link to sign up in your welcome email but you can also contact move@uwe.ac.uk if you have questions.
  • Leagues include 11 a side, 5 a side and 6 a side.
