RUMS Sport is supported by the MDU.
Getting involved in RUMS Sport is a decision few students regret. Bonds forged in these teams will carry you through and beyond your time at RUMS. Whether you are a casual player looking to keep fit or a more serious athlete, these clubs cater to the social and sporting needs of people of any level. Most sports also hold a weekly social on a Wednesday, and go on various tours to different parts of the country/abroad.
Notable annual events include RUMS Hockey’s matches in the London Varsity Series against KCL, Rugby’s Bill Smith’s event and football’s St. John’s Cup event, where the first year medics face off against the the second years, and the Lumsden Cup; an inter-sport netball competition run by RUMS netball where all proceeds go to charity.
All the sports teams will be present at the RUMS Fresher’s Fair, and will hold trial days where you can go and get a feel of what it is like to be part of the club with no obligation to sign up. Don’t worry if you miss these; as a general rule the clubs are very welcoming, and are happy for you to come down for a trial session, though it best to email them first so they can ensure they can accommodate you.
