The Sports Union is a student-led organisation responsible for Heriot-Watt's sporting needs.
We offer Heriot-Watt students the perfect opportunity to join a club, receive coaching and compete in your chosen sport at higher education level.
Try your first session for free!
You can take advantage of our 'First Session Free' initiative by attending an appropriate Club session for free as long as it is your first time. Please note that in the event of a club having more than one team training you can only attend the session of the lowest team for free. For information on club training times see the individual sports club pages.
How to join the Sports Union
In order to join the SU you must first become a member of the Centre for Sport & Exercise.
You then have the option of joining any of our sports clubs.
Sports Union social events
The SU can also improve your social life by creating opportunities for you to meet with your team mates before, during and after training and games or through one of our organised events.
Highlights of the SU social calendar are the annual ceilidh, SU Ball, and the Blues & Volunteer Awards Ceremony.
Structure of the Sports Union
The SU is headed by a Sabbatical President and an elected student Executive Committee. It is based on a foundation of volunteers, from club officials to SU Executive Officers. This creates a perfect opportunity to get involved, make a difference and have fun!
The Sports Union Charter explains the SU's responsibilities in providing its members with the opportunity of a worthwhile sporting experience at Heriot-Watt University.
