As part of a vibrant co-curricular set of choices for the social development of our students, sports is an integral part with a key focus on presenting opportunities for students to nurture their sporting talent and represent the University in respected leagues across the country.
The University Sports department strongly encourages the discovery and promotion of talent and it is a great way to exercise your hobby or fall in love with a brand new sport. Keeping fit is the most ideal way to maintain a healthy lifestyle during one’s studies.
The University has invested in ensuring the sports men and ladies teams are able to balance their academics and sports engagements; they also get to work with respected coaches in the country.In addition, following this continuous excellence by the university sports teams, local and international organisations are lining up to be part of the successful Zetech integrated learning model.
We have basketball, football, rugby, taekwondo and karateteams and we are keen on finalizing the formation of teams to participate in indoor games such as Chess, Pool, Table Tennis and Scrabble.
Zetech University can boast of a total of 3 football teams, which include:
