Move East London

East London Sport offers a wide range of FREE sport and physical activity for everyone to get involved in from Football and Basketball in SportsDock to Yoga or HIIT Training in Stratford. There's something for everyone to give a go!

Free Weekly Tournaments

All UEL Staff and Students can take part in our fun and relaxed sports tournaments, open to all levels and abilities. You are able to socialise and develop long lasting friendships that will stay with you throughout university and afterwards. The aim is really simple:

  • Enter a team with your fellow halls of residence, your academic school or as part of a social group (or simply turn up on the day)
  • Compete against the other teams
  • Your team will accumulate points for each tournament attended. 
  • The winners will be crowned champions at our annual Sports Awards event.

Weekly tournaments take place on a Tuesday evening between 5:00-8:00pm at SportsDock, Docklands Campus. Come down with as many friends as possible and get the atmosphere buzzing! Whether you want to try something new or just looking for something to do with your friends, the free tournaments are the place to be. From Basketball and Cricket, to Dodgeball and Zorb Football it's not something to miss.

Healthy campus

UEL is committed to providing inclusive opportunities to improve health, wellbeing and the personal development of students, staff and our community. The UEL Healthy Campus initiative aims to provide information and resources to support and advise on health issues, including fitness, preventing re-occurring injuries, quitting smoking, losing weight and improving wellbeing.

The initiative aims to raise awareness of the benefits associated with healthy living and to encourage everyone to adopt a holistic approach to health including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental health. We believe that a healthy campus supports students and staff to achieve their ambitious goals.
