Team Derby is the focal point for the development and delivery of sport here at the University and provides students, staff, and members of the public with a world of sporting opportunity, fitness and activity.
Our inclusive attitude to sport, exercise and health shows we passionately believe in the ethos of ‘Sport for All’.
Although still in its early stages, Team Derby is fast building a strong reputation for increasing participation and raising the level of performance.
We take pride in nurturing talent both on and off the field, but value participation and getting involved just as much as we do trophies. We believe that sport has a place for everyone - and whilst we know that winning isn't everything, we believe that enjoyment is.
Our facilities are being developed to cater for students of all abilities, from students competing at national and regional level, to those who have only a fledging interest in recreational sport, health and exercise.
Our commitment is to develop both performance and participation, and provide opportunities that will enable you to be involved in and enjoy sport at whatever level you choose.
Team Derby is the brand name for sport at the University of Derby. Team Derby is a collaboration between the University (both academic and support departments involved in the provision of sport) and the Athletic Union.
The Athletic Union provides students with a number of services ranging from membership of a wide choice of sports clubs to playing representative sport for the University in national and regional competitions.
