Thank you for visiting the SESSA website. We are sorry to report that after a period of over 50 years of delivering sports championships, leagues and tournaments to the FE and HE sector in the South of England, the SESSA executive made the reluctant decision to dissolve the organisation at the recent AGM in June 2018.


For various reasons, and mostly due to the wide range of alternative provision of sports activity for students, the viability of SESSA to continue as an organiser of student sports event, is no longer possible. Over the past few years the only event which enjoyed a continued level of support, was the SESSA Indoor Athletics Championships, which was in the main organised and delivered by Middlesex University (along with the support of many volunteer officials from local athletic clubs).


Middlesex University has offered to take on the reins of continuing to organise an indoor athletics event along similar lines to the SESSA Championships for at least the next year. If the support for the event continues, then Middlesex University will look to continue to run the event at a similar time in the year, of the first Wednesday in December.


If you would like information on the new Middlesex University Open student Indoor Athletics Championships, please visit the Middlesex University website  or contact
