These are the competitive teams that represent Barts and The London across the country. There are a range of abilities in each of the teams, starting from beginners to national players.

The sporting highlight of the year is our varsity event against Queen Mary, known as The Merger Cup. Every March, teams from BL and QM are pitted against each other in a week-long competition. Sporting excellence aside, the event is great fun we’re hungrier than ever to return the cup to its rightful place #mergerscominghome

How do I join a Sports Club?

The first step to joining is to come along to Freshers Fayre, checking their social media or contacting them to find out about any taster sessions or trials that are happening, as well as the possibility of a Freshers’ Curry.
