» Sports


The Christ Church Sports Ground is among the best in the University with excellent pitches and a friendly bar. It is a short distance from the College on Iffley Road. Many different sports are catered for either at Christ Church or through University facilities: badminton, basketball, cricket, cross-country, football, hockey, netball, pool, rowing, rugby, squash, table football, tennis and real tennis are only some of the options available to all students. Everyone is welcome to participate at a level that suits his or her abilities. There are various intercollegiate competitions, but it is possible to get involved even if you are more enthusiastic and willing than highly skilled or experienced.
