College Clubs

Albies is renowned for its strong sporting traditions and this year has again fielded competitive teams in many sports.

Currently, the college competes in Basketball, Netball, Rugby Union, Volleyball, Soccer, Mixed Netty, Water Polo and Hockey.

Many other sports can be played at a more social level in the intercollegiate competitions of the Mary Bagnell Trophy and the President’s Trophy. The inter-college women’s & men’s sporting competitions allow our teams the chance to go head to head with other colleges in different sports.

Albies students also have the opportunity to compete against, and socialise with, other University athletes from Queensland and Northern NSW, by participating in the University Games, that are held annually each year.
