Sport plays a big part of URNU life and our unit offers something for everyone, regardless of fitness level or ability.
Weekly training sessions are held for:
- Bucketball (a unique sport enjoyed by URNU’s throughout the country; think Netball/Basketball, but with a twist!)
Two of our current students have had the opportunity to play for the Royal Naval rugby team - what a privilege!!
Sports training sessions culminate in the much anticipated Sports Weekend, an event which sees every URNU in the country come together to compete, show off their skills, make new friends, and hopefully bring home a trophy or two! Most recently, we ended Sports Weekend 2019 in 5th place (competing against the other 15 URNU units).
Other sporting events have also included adventurous training in Germany, ski trips, hill climbing, combined sports with the Glasgow OTC, white water rafting, and even participating in training lead by the French Marines.
