Pursuing your sporting passions at Bond

At Bond, we want to help you kick goals – both on and off the field. That’s why we not only support our students as they pursue their education, but as they endeavour to play sports and stay active, whether that’s at a recreational level or at an elite level in national clubs, international tournaments and beyond.  

Once you join one of our sporting clubs, you are a Bond Bull Shark for life. All of our clubs, regardless of level, operate under the Bond Bull Shark banner (waved proudly by our mascot, Bondy). Whether you’re all about athletics, nuts about netball or totally into tennis, you’ll have the opportunity to make connections with your fellow Bondies and represent the Bull Sharks in a little competition – friendly or otherwise…

Types of sport

Club and recreational sport

All of the fun without any of the pressure, we have around 20 sports represented by our club and recreational student sporting teams. If you’re all about meeting new people, blowing off a little steam and staying active in the process, why not get involved?


Elite teams

For the keen sportspeople amongst us, we also have a number of elite clubs that play at state level, including netball, AFL, swimming and rugby teams. Well-respected and hardworking, these elite teams participate in professional leagues including the QAFLW and Division 2 AFL, the Sapphire Series for netball, and the Queensland Premier Rugby competition. Teams consist of both Bond students and non-students (or as we call them, honorary Bondies), and since their inception have seen incredible success, including premiership wins and even Olympic debuts for various players and team members.
