Sports clubs

Marjon Mens Football team play at Varsity

Our teams have a healthy competitive spirit, no matter what level you want to play at. Check out our teams below and contact them direct, or through the Students' Union, to give one a try. New members are always welcome.

Varsity Week, usually held in March, is students’ chance to prove themselves against students from Plymouth University. Whether you’re part of a sports team or not, there’s something for everyone, with big games held on campus and at major sporting grounds in the city. Together, we are the Mighty Marjon!

Yes, dance is a real sport! We are one of the few sports team at Marjon University that doesn’t throw, kick or catch a ball and we pride ourselves on that. We welcome all abilities and styles, whether you’ve been dancing your whole life or have never boogied on the dance floor. Each year we do two performances which you can choose to be in or not.

When we’re not dancing, we love a good social. We hold both alcoholic and non-alcoholic events so everyone can be involved and have a great time! Contact us on Facebook or Instagram.

We range from 14-18 team members throughout the season with varying levels of ability. We welcome anyone with any hockey experience who wants to have some fun, but also be part of a great club and team. We are a self-coached team with our captain and other senior players helping to run the training sessions to a high standard.

Alongside playing in a university league we have a very strong link with the local hockey club, Plymouth Marjon Hockey Club. By playing for the club and university team you get the chance to play lots of hockey throughout the week with different people. Find us on Facebook or email captain Tom Perry on

Swimming & Water Polo

We are a super friendly club open to all. We have a well-established female waterpolo club that plays varsity and trains twice a week. The male team trains twice a week also and hope to start games this year! As a swimming club we have social and competition lanes. We are implementing swim teaching into the sessions to aid those who want to improve their stroke or learn a new stroke, via members who are qualified swim teachers. We meet regularly for social events both during the day and in the evening. Find us on Facebook or email Ben Greenslade on

Women’s Rugby

We have one team and we normally range from 18-25 members. We have close relationships with 3 rugby clubs, Plymouth Albion, Devon Port Services and Plymstock Albion Oaks. It is optional for the girls to play additional rugby outside university but is a great opportunity for those who wish to improve on their skills.

Our social life is important to us to get to know everyone not just on the pitch. It’s a great way of meeting new people, enjoying the sport you love or taking up a new sport. Find us on Facebook or contact captain Megan Okey on
