Sports clubs at CUNEF
CUNEF encourages sporting pursuits while at university. We believe that sport helps in the development of skills and values such as teamwork, motivation, a sense of belonging, leadership, moderation, self-improvement… As well as encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
CUNEF is currently represented by a total of six teams in university competition, five in the men’s category and one women’s team.
In the women’s category the volleyball team was promoted to the first division in 2018, while the men’s rugby, basketball and 11-a-side football teams are well established in the top flight. There are also men’s 7-a-side and futsal teams in the second division.
Aside from the university league, during this academic year CUNEF will continue to stage its Internal Futsal League involving more than 100 students on teams covering different courses, as well as the Internal Padel Tennis Tournament. We will likewise be taking part in such other events as the Spanish University Championships and charitable tournaments in a range of disciplines.
Keen runners should join our Running Club, which takes part in a number of fun runs as well as the Madrid Half Marathon.
Meanwhile, if your favourite sport is not included on the list then the department responsible for organising the various clubs is always open to new suggestions.
