The official lists are visible on a secure list server run centrally by the University. You will be required to log in to see the details, and may also find that you need to use the back button twice to see the page you wanted after supplying your ID and password for the first time in a session. There are also a number of unofficial, social lists (e.g. cs-badminton, cs-squash).
