About:

Sport Clubs at Macquarie University began as early as 1967 with the Cricket Club, MacAlpine Ski Club, Rugby Union Club, Soccer Club and Squash Club forming the foundation Sport Clubs of Macquarie University.

Since that time it has grown to offer a variety of sporting club options for both students and non-students of Macquarie University.

Sport Clubs at Macquarie University are a fun and easy way to play sport or get fit. For those of you with a competitive streak, joining a club can enable you to compete in different levels of competition – from local, regional and state level competitions all the way to national inter-university championships; while those who may not be as competition focused, joining a club can provide you the opportunity to get together with like-minded athletes and just have fun.

Additionally, we provide Learn Courses for Fencing, Squash and Volleyball for those who are keen to understand the ins and outs for a sport they may not have participated in before.
