Celebrating the MUST Sports Champions

The Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) sports champions continually lead the charts in competitive national sporting events. MUST offers a variety of indoor, board and outdoor sporting activities such as rugby, badminton, chess, table tennis, baseball, roll ball, wood ball, netball, darts, volleyball, football, basketball, swimming and athletics among others.

The sports family within the MUST community inscribes resilience, tenacity and team spirit in all players. These activities serve as key factors in establishing the wholesome university student experience required in nurturing holistically developed graduates. Our sports champions perform at an elite level in their sports and studies. It is this holistic approach that creates champions on the field and in the community.
