About the Club

Both our 1st and 2nd teams play in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) League every Wednesday, with excellent results across both teams. We also participate in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) Cup and Trophy, with both our performance teams having reached the Quarter Finals or above for the last 3 years.

As a club, we welcome players of all abilities and hold a Beginners and Development programme for any players wanting to try out the sport, even if they have never played before, as well as wanting to join in with our social events. (More details on our Beginners and Development programme below).

Every Wednesday night after our matches we offer fantastic socials for the whole club, with our Social Secs constantly thinking up new and exciting fancy dress themes and organising joint socials with the men's Rugby, men's Lacrosse and many other societies.

The best parts of our social calender include our big Christmas, Easter and End of year gatherings, Sport’s Ball and an incredible tour during the Easter holidays.

Join our club and you will be making the best decision of your year at Leeds. We guarantee you will make friends for life and have some incredible times along the way.

We encourage any players of any standard to join our club and aim to offer a fun activity for those seeking less serious competition.
