How to get involved in sports during restrictions

As a result of the government’s new COVID-19 tier 3 (‘very high’) alert level which is now in place in the Liverpool City Region we have had to take the difficult decision to close the University’s Sports and Fitness Centre temporarily.

The team at Sport Liverpool will be keeping all members up to date on any changes via the website, email and their dedicated social media channels.

You can still get active though! Our online resources will be updated weekly to provide fitness and wellbeing advice and help you keep active.
All membership subscriptions will be frozen during this closure period and the team are available on if you have any questions.

Athletic Union (AU) membership

Where allowed within the new rules, the Athletic Union (AU) sports are continuing. This includes outdoor sports based at Wyncote, Greenbank Playing Fields and COVID-secure community-based facilities within the Liverpool City Region.

Athletic Union Executive Committee President Amy Hughes and Vice President Ohio Orumen have been working hard to make sure all those in the AU are up-to-date with the latest arrangements.

Students interested in sports are being encouraged to connect with the AU and get involved despite the current restrictions. Many of the activities are still running and it is a great way to meet like-minded people, expand your friendship group and get active.

Four things you can do today:

  1. Connect with @SportLiverpool & @LivUni_AU for updates on clubs you can join and information on the gym and facilities.
  2. Watch our ‘Introduction to Sport at University of Liverpool’ video on Instagram or on Canvas under the Sport and Wellbeing page.
  3. Check out the Sport Liverpool website for the A-Z on all the sports clubs you can join and how to get involved in campus leagues.
  4. Make sure your friends, course mates and flatmates have all done the same!

If you have any questions about the AU you can contact the team via Instagram or on or
