Nationals

Have you got what it takes? Represent UWA Maali at UniSport Nationals in 2022!

UniSport Nationals provides the opportunity for students from more than 40 universities from across Australia to compete head-to-head in a number of sporting competitions. In 2022, the Nationals Division 1 and 2 will return to Perth from 24–30 September. Standalone events will be held across the country throughout the year.

UWA Maali became the first university outside the big 3 (the University of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and Monash University) to win the Overall Title since 1994, when we clinched the title on our home turf in Perth at the 2010 games. UWA were crowned overall champions once again when the competition returned to Perth in 2016.
