Sports clubs and XJTLU teams

Physical Education Centre

Sports clubs

The Physical Education Centre at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University supports the development of student sports clubs, which are extra-curricular and none-competitive.

Through monthly club counselling sessions, the PEC supports clubs leaders with funding applications, club development issues and activity coordination. Students with ideas for new sports clubs should submit an application through the counselling system, working with the PEC to develop a robust proposal.

The centre encourages interest-driven development of sports clubs and supports students in the self-governance of these clubs, while at the same time providing a support system so that students are able to adequately access available resources.

XJTLU teams

There are currently XJTLU university teams representing eight sports:


  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Athletics
  • Badminton
  • Tennis
  • Golf
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Karate
These teams represent the University at competitions at local, provincial and national level and the PEC supports their development. Players for these teams are chosen through selection events, often coming from the extra-curricular sports clubs, or are spotted by PEC staff during physical education activities.



XJTLU teams have enjoyed success in recent years, including success for the Ultimate Frisbee team at the First China Ultimate Frisbee College League Final.
