Current Social Sessions Offered:

Below is a table detailing the current social sport sessions offered at Macquarie University Sport.


Badminton is a game played with rackets in which a shuttlecock is hit back and fourth across a net. Similar to tennis, it can be played in singles (1-on-1) or doubles (2-on-2). Badminton sessions are hosted in both the Sports Hall and Recreational Hall of Macquarie University Sport.


Basketball is a game played between two teams of five players in which points are scored by throwing a ball through a netted hoop fixed at each end of the court. Basketball sessions are hosted in the Sports Hall of Macquarie University Sport.


Futsal is a modified form of soccer/football played with five players per side on a smaller, typically indoor pitch. Futsal sessions are hosted in the Sports Hall of Macquarie University Sport.
