Sheffield MedSoc


An excellent way of releasing that competitive demon inside all medics in a socially acceptable way.


Medics badminton is a friendly society, welcoming players of all abilities whether you are a top county player to absolute beginners. We play friendly games and also take part in tournaments with other medical schools where in recent years we have shown great success. We hope to continue this success again in 2017/2018 and are hoping to take part in a Varsity competition involving Leeds and Manchester University. We are a social society and often head down to the local pub after sessions as well as organising meals and nights out as a club. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own racket as we have plenty that you can borrow. If you are interested or have any questions drop us an email or contact the president or secretary directly. We hope to see you at medic’s badminton next year!

Time and location: Wednesday 7-8:30pm at King Edward VII lower school, Darwin lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S10 5RG

Bouldering is climbing without a harness or helmet. Our bouldering club is a friendly open club that meet on Sundays and head to the climbing wall. We'll climb for a few hours and then go to the pub for a drink, some food and a game of pool. Come and see what we're all about.

Hello Cricketers, we are Sheffield Medical School Cricket Club (NAMS Champions 2016, 2017)

If you are partial to a spot of corkball and a helping of questionable Sheffield curry, then this may well be the club for you. We enjoy nothing more than the riveting contest between bat and ball followed by some exquisite Indian cuisine, and perhaps a few beverages. We are a friendly club, welcoming cricketers of all abilities. Emphasis is very much on the social and fun side of cricket! We play mostly outdoor 40 and 20 over games, with some indoor cricket through Winter. Nets will run after Christmas on Thursday evenings at Birkdale School from 8pm with the friendly SUSCC and these are paid for with a £20 membership fee covering 10 sessions, we also provide club kit for those without their own.  We would love to welcome you down to training, and look forward to playing with you over the course of the Summer!

Football (Mens)

We are a student run university football team comprised from over 70 active members of both Junior Doctors who've graduated from Sheffield and Medical students currently studying at the University of Sheffield. Our 1st team plays in the 7th tier of English football Sheffield and Hallamshire division 1 after winning division 2 in the 16/17 season. We also had impressive showings in the county and league cups beating may higher ranked teams to reach the quarter and semi finals, respectively. Our 2nds play in the University intra mural league against other society football teams whilst our third team is more of a casual 11 a side team playing in a informal intra mural league structure.

Beyond our 11 a side teams there are 6x 6 aside teams playing weekly where places are prioritised to first and second years. We cater to all abilities and offer affordable football weekly with the optional extra of many varied socials throughout the year and national and international tours.

Training takes place every Thursday at 9pm at Goodwin.

1st and 2nd teams play matches on Saturdays.

6x a side teams play their fixtures at 6pm Tuesdays.

We enter two 11-a-side mixed teams into the NAMS trophy, which the 1st team has won 4 years in a row, as well as arrange friendly fixtures for our 3rd team allowing plenty of opportunity to play full sided games.

We also take part in mini-Nams where one of the northern medic hockey clubs host for a weekend and the rest join for some fancy dress and games. The club also puts on various teaching when it comes to exam time, whether that’s peer teaching lectures for the 1st and 2nd years, or OSCEs for the 3rd years.

The Club has around 75 members, fielding 3 teams every Saturday in the local Yorkshire leagues with the 1st XV playing in Yorkshire 3, as well as taking part in the NAMS competition against other medical schools across the country. Of all the rugby clubs within the university, our team plays the most games and gets the most people involved at different levels, including those with no experience at all. We train in the evening couple of times a week, Monday, Tuesday and Friday, and so do not get in the way of studying. Every Saturday the games are followed by socials at a local pub before heading to Pop Tarts at the SU for possibly the best university night you will ever experience!

We have had recent success in NAMS, winning in 2014, and NAMS 7s competitions which we won in 2016.
