Sports, Culture and Recreation

Sports play a key role in moulding students. These give both physical and mental relaxation to the students from their hectic schedules. Sports also help develop students into well-balanced individuals assisting them to develop skills such as collaboration, team building, critical thinking, articulation and many others.

Botho University is a national and well-recognised sporting institution having won many accolades in all major championships. We have produced many national and regional athletes who have brought fame and glory to the institution and the country over the years. We also offer some of the finest sports facilities in the country including basketball, volleyball courts, an open-air Chess square, table tennis and a soccer turf with facilities to play day and night matches.
