Welcome to the University of Nottingham Sport Lifesaving Club!

Welcome to the SU page of one of the friendliest clubs on the UoN campus! Our club is open to anyone; whether you're an experienced lifesaver, swimmer or someone who never even realised it was even a sport! We train twice a week and compete nationally in the BULSCA league against other universities around the country.

"What is lifesaving?" we hear you say. UoN Sport Lifesaving Club combines first aid and rescue skills with competitive swimming and is completely different from any other sports club!

Our competitions test fitness, rescue and first aid skills and what's great is that it's not just about physical aptitude - it's also about the ability to prioritise, adapt and show initiative.

We are a sociable club and compete at weekends in mixed teams of 4 at Universities across the country including Sheffield, Warwick, Birmingham and Southampton after which are amazing socials, which are great for getting to know fellow lifesavers from all over the country. We also hold a mix of socials throughout the year.


Visit our stall at the Welcome Fair on University Park Campus and say hi to our committee! They would love to meet you and answer any questions you may have!


Free taster sessions for next academic year will take place after Welcome week.
