Formed in 1960, the Sports Union is the student-focused organisation that provides sport and exercise opportunities for Heriot-Watt students.

With a sports performance programme, and over 30 different clubs offering a range of activity from recreational fun to competition in a safe and welcoming environment, there’s a place in the Watt Family for everyone regardless of sporting ability or experience.

Off the field, the Sports Union also hosts some of the best social events in town and promotes career development through volunteering and education programmes.
