Sports Clubs are a great way to get involved during your time at UEA. Clubs create great friendship groups, provide new experiences and offer fantastic opportunities for learning and development and most importantly, for having fun. Each club is run by a committee of current students, supported by uea+sport and uea su.
There are 58 active sports clubs on offer, ranging from American Football to Yoga. Every club is open to all students so if you are interested in getting involved in a certain club please contact the club presidents directly by clicking on the clubs link below.
Sports Association Membership (SAM) and Club Fees
Before you are eligible to join any of the sports clubs you will be required to purchase Sports Association Membership (SAM) at a cost of £55 for the year (or £30 for half year). This contributes to the cost of club activities, i.e. coaching, kit, transport, affiliations, insurance and much more.
If you are only here for one semester and wish to buy half year SAM, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with proof of your term dates, and this will be arranged.
You only need to buy SAM once per academic year, no matter how many clubs you join, and when you've paid you will get a SAM sticker for your campus card. Club committee members also need to pay for SAM.
For further information please contact Alicia Perez Lopez (A.Perez@uea.ac.uk) or visit the student union website. *must be purchased before joining any of the clubs. * Please note, that each club also charges a fee in addition to SAM. Fees vary and are set by each individual club.
