College Sport

Whether you’ve been playing a sport for the past ten years, are rekindling a past passion or simply fancy trying something new, then college sport can cater for your needs. This is a fantastic way to meet new people, make new friends, and most of all have a fantastic time.

Throughout the year all nine colleges compete in a range of sports, with the standard improving year on year as more people embrace the fantastic opportunities presented by college sport. Currently there are twenty-one leagues, with fixtures played weekly. We also hold several tournaments throughout the year as an opportunity to gain more college sport points and have fun with your team.

The results of all of these individual competitions are compiled together to determine who will be crowned inter-college sports champion at the end of the year, a trophy which saw James College crowned champions last year, following a few years of domination by Derwent. Now it’s up to you to help your college to become the next champions, and everyone can play their part.

College sport is all about inclusivity, it is open to absolutely everyone, and whoever you are and whatever you like, we have something for you. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, throw yourself in, try something new, and most of all have a great time!


Your College Sport Officers,
