Just off Main Walkway, UNSW's luxurious VG is a glorious green space for every sport. From Quidditch and social sports between classes to rep cricket matches or as a safe landing space to practice your karate kicks and flips, our beloved uni oval has you covered.

Futsal & Half Basketball Court

Located next to the VG, the half basketball and futsal courts are available for free play and pick-up games year round. Whether you're training for Unigames or practicing your bicycle kick, this is the spot for you.
