Competition experience is in essence unique to all athletes. To enable the HKUST student athletes to compete with their counterparts in sports events, since 1991, the HKUST Sports Teams have taken part in the sports competitions organized by the University Sports Federation of Hong Kong (USFHK), the All China University Games in China, and other inter-varsity competitions.
A number of HKUST sports clubs also take the lead in organizing annual sport tournaments for their local and overseas counterparts, such as archery, fencing, handball, korfball, netball, rowing, sport climbing, tchoukball, and volleyball. The Sports Association, HKUSTSU
and the related Sports Clubs also organize the HKUST Intramural Sports Competitions.
