The Students' Union at UWE offers a wide range of groups and activities to get involved in but if the activity you're looking for isn't currently available then why not set one up yourself?
Not only will setting up a sports club bring the activity you're passionate about to a whole new group of people but it will also provide you with a lot of skills that are going to boost your CV. There's a saying that goes "Don't just get a degree, get an education!" – starting up and running a sports club can give you the extra transferable skills that employers are looking for.
