Christ Church’s Sports Facilities

We are very fortunate at Christ Church to have fantastic sports facilities that our students can use. Facilities need to be booked online with an account on https://chchoxford.sports-booker.com, and some facilities are bookable by Captains only.

Please note that our sports facilities are available to current members only.

The Honorary Treasurer of the Amalgamated Clubs is Professor Jason Davis (jason.davis@chch.ox.ac.uk), who can be contacted if there are any issues.

For general queries or comments, please contact the Sports Reps:
