Essex Blades E-Sports


If you are interested in competitive gaming for games such as League of Legends, CS-GO, DOTA 2 and more, we will be participating in both NUEL and NSE leagues

These teams will be set up in the Discord server, so if you have an interest make sure you join and talk to us about what game and events you would like to participate in. We have plans to accomodate for smaller game communities as well, we're not just for the major multiplayer ones. If you are interested in finding friends or likeminded people for the relatively niche games, we will work to provide that platform for you amongst our Discord as well as in future events.



We can have as many teams as we want to compete for each game. Teams will be balanaced according to rank and ability so that everyone is welcome. The tournaments try their best to accomodate low level teams with other low level teams so that everyone can get as fair a game as possible, so do not be concerned about if you feel like you'd be dragging others down and represent the university to the best of your ability!


To be a part of the club, you need to join up as a member. The different club membership options are listed below with a description of what each membership covers. By purchasing a membership you are agreeing to the club's code of conduct.

To get involved, all you need is some boots and a gumshield, the club can provide all the other equipment necessary. No previous expierence is needed and all players of all sizes are welcome.

We have one mixed 1st team (BUCS South East 1A).


Please note that your membership information will be used in conjunction with Essex Sport (University of Essex) purely for the purpose of providing access to required facilities and data analysis. Your data will not be shared with anyone else or used for marketing purposes. Memberships are uploaded to the Essex Sport system manually and so it may take up to 5 working days before you are able to book onto your session via the Essex Sport app and attend training sessions.
