Discover how to represent Griffith in sport

We select individuals and teams to compete in a variety of sports, representing Griffith University to compete against other Australian universities at Nationals. Nationals are held on the Gold Coast, with division 2 sports to be played in July and division 1 sports to be played in September. There are also a host of other inter-varsity events that cover a number of other sports.

Please note that Unigames no longer exists and Nationals Div 1 & Div 2 replace this program. As a result each sport division is only played once per year, so if you don't sign up for a certain sport division in Nationals Div 2, it will not be available in Div 1. There is only one opportunity to play each sport per year.

Griffith University Womens National Sevens University Series
