We help run over 80 recognised university sports clubs in addition to a plethora of individual, independent college clubs and teams. From the biggest team sports that you may wish to continue from your school endeavours to completely new and different activities that you could try - Oxford offers all the opportunities. Continue your hobby, augment your career or fall in love with a completely new sport - our accessible, supportive and diverse system facilitates both.
Alongside Oxford's formidable academic stature is an enviable sporting record. We are one of the top sporting institutions in the country, with over 50 teams competing in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues weekly and represented at most BUCS competitions. In 2009/10 we finished 8th in the UK.
Oxford University v Cambridge University Varsity fixtures are the oldest rivalries in the world and most sports compete. Rugby Union and Rowing Varsity attract global attention.
Recreationally, fitness enthusiasts or those wishing to embark on a new health regime can take advantage of the PULSE gym situated at our Iffley Road hub. Student memberships are the cheapest you'll find in the area.
For talented athletes the Sports Federation runs several scholarships for current students, and can provide grants to cover costs incurred in representing your country in fixtures or events. We are also a lead hub for the TASS scheme, with Reading University and Oxford Brookes partnering us.
Oxford is also one of the MCCU Cricket Centres of Excellence linking up with Oxford Brookes University.
