Our clubs and societies make us who we are. Open to all students irrespective of ability, RUMS Sports and Societies are an integral part of life at UCLMS. We are proud to host such a wide range of opportunities for our students.
RUMS Badminton is the club for those who have reflexes, speed and a love for rackets! Members can join our competitive team to play matches against other universities or just play socially on courts included in your membership. We also host weekly sports nights and other social events throughout the year – we look forward to seeing you on court or in the bar!
RUMS Boat Club
Though RUMSBC is one of the bigger RUMS sports teams, it still feels like a close family. We are mixed, with both joint and separate men’s and women’s social events. We welcome anyone to rowing, especially those who have never tried it before - most of us learned in our first year! If you want to learn to row on the Thames with a group of friendly, caring and fun people and make friends for life, come join RUMSBC.
RUMS Women's Football
RUMS WFC is one of the friendliest clubs around.

We welcome the full range of players, giving everyone a chance to learn, improve and join matches.

We have 3 teams, so plenty of opportunities for everybody to get involved! Many members start off as complete beginners - our excellent coaching and fitness sessions set you up with all the skills you’ll need to keep improving. For those who are more experienced, our 1st XI in BUCS league 1 are always looking for talented players. We have plenty of socials to keep everybody bonding throughout the year and are planning online socials for those who can’t be in London in term 1. Every Wednesday is Sports Night, always guaranteed to be a laugh and a great opportunity to keep up team spirits!
RUMS Men's Hockey

RUMS Netball currently offers 7 teams ranging from a social team, for those with little or no previous playing experience, to our higher teams, for those who are looking to play at a competitive level. As well as running training sessions and competing in matches, we also host a variety of social events. Regardless of your playing abilities or interests, there is a place for you in our club!
We welcome all abilities in RUMS Rugby, with two teams who play weekly BUCS matches alongside a preclinical team (years 1-3) who play occasional exhibition matches.
