UPENN Sport Clubs 2016-2017 Recap

Another SPECTACULAR year is in the books! Once again each UPENN sport club competed their tales off in their respective leagues/associations. Several teams had good enough seasons that they qualified for playoff runs; including our Women’s Ice Hockey Club, Men’s Lacrosse Club, Women’s Water Polo Club, Men’s Ice Hockey Club, and more. Many others took it a step beyond as well and competed on the National level. The Ping Pong Club along with the Gymnastics Club, Cycling Club, M/W Volleyball Clubs, Curling Club, Ski Club and more took the National competitions by storm this year. Please visit Sport Club personal pages found in our Sport Club Directory for post-season results. As we end another school year we say goodbye to our graduating seniors and we wish them continued success their future endeavors. We also look forward to another school year being on the horizon and welcoming in new students and athletes. If you are a new student looking to continue your athletic career, then please reach out to our staff and club officers for more information on how to get involved. The University of Pennsylvania Sport Club Program consists of 36 Sport Clubs with over 1,500+ athlete participants. Our Sport Club Program aims to deliver impactful engagement opportunities to students pursuing competitive sport interests, by providing quality recreation, education and leadership experiences. As just one of the many platforms here at UPenn that enhances the student learning experience, we take great pride in the supplementary benefit that our sport clubs provide. No matter if its throwing a frisbee, swinging a bat, shooting a basket or scoring a goal we offer a sport club for you. GO QUAKERS!!




Sports Club had another successful fall semester with several of our clubs receiving honors from their respected associations and many other competed in post-season play. We want to welcome everyone back and we hope to continue that success into the spring seasons. So please don’t miss out on some of our upcoming events, take a break from all that studying and relieve some stress while you take in some competitive play.

We want to congratulate all of the UPenn Sport Clubs on another superb school year. Good luck to all clubs going on to Playoffs and Nationals!!
