Social and recreational sport opportunities

Social and recreational sport is a great way to have fun and stay active. At AUT you can join in regular one-off sport activities on campus – just grab some mates for a game of volleyball, basketball and even mini golf at our 'pick up and play' sessions. You can also join a social sport team – and if you live in AUT accommodation, check out our residential sport opportunities.

'Pick up and play’ activities at Te Āhuru Recreation Centre

Bring your friends and head over to our students-only Te Āhuru Recreation Centre (City Campus), where you can take part in weekly 'pick up and play' games including Futsal, badminton, table tennis, volleyball and more. Hosted by AUTSA in collaboration with Te Āhuru Recreation Centre.

For details of what's on and when, like us on Facebook or check out our webpage.
