We are incredibly lucky at Worcester to have one of the best and most inclusive sporting communities around. This may be due to the proximity of our sporting facilities to our college (being the only college with sports pitches on site!). Many students find throwing a ball or around on our beautiful grounds is the perfect way to relax and socialise in Oxford’s often demanding environment.

Most college sports consists of weekly training sessions, weekly league matches, regular socials and cuppers (the big annual inter-collegiate tournament). Worcester has a deserved sporty reputation – regularly appearing in cuppers finals and bringing home all kinds of trophies. Last year was no different – we won the men’s football league, men’s reserve football league, women’s five a side football cuppers, men’s hockey league, men’s hockey cuppers and the women’s netball league! With any luck we will be able to put in yet another sensational performance and top last year’s tally.

Trials will be held Saturday 0th week: all levels of previous experience are welcome. Many of our students also represent the university in sport – if you have any questions about playing/trialling get in contact with sports rep Ant Murray (antonia.murray@worc.ox.ac.uk) who should be able to put you in touch with the right people.
