You can also play squash through our Campus Courses programme. Over six weeks, you’ll learn the basics of squash (including how to hold a racket, the rules of the game, moves and techniques) and put your new-found skills to the test in friendly matches – all with the help of the expertise of a professional squash coach.

Performance Sport

If you’re successful in trying out for our Performance Sport team, TeamBU Squash, you’ll represent BU at national level in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues and competitions. We’ve currently got two men’s teams and one women’s team who play in BUCS throughout the academic year.

Our Performance Sport staff team will be with you every step of the way, offering support during your time at BU. One of the benefits of being a SportBU athlete is that you’ll have exclusive access to the Strength and Conditioning suite on our Talbot Campus – packed full of specialist equipment to help you stay in the best shape possible.

Student playing tennis

Tennis

Whatever level you’re at, playing tennis is a full body workout. Swinging the racket works the muscles in your shoulders, back and core and you’ll use the muscles of your lower body as you run, jump, crouch and move on the spot.
