ALMOST 2,000 students at the University of Portsmouth have got involved in sport in the past year.

A total of 1,848 students at the university have got involved in sport in the first year of Sport England’s Active Universities campaign.

Sport England is investing more than £8m of National Lottery funding over three years through Active Universities to get students playing sport.

Mike Diaper, director of community sport at Sport England, said: ‘Young adults who are still playing sport when they leave university are likely to stick with it for life.’
