Welcome to Vanbrugh Sports

Vanbrugh have 10 sports teams - netball, football, rugby, women’s rugby, squash, hockey, tennis, basketball, badminton and pool - and we also play rounders and cricket in the summer term.

All of our teams are open to all abilities so you can play even if you are a beginner! You can also set up your own sports team if there is a sport you enjoy that we don’t have a team for.

Our sports teams train 1-2 times a week and usually play matches once a week, so it is the perfect mix between competitive and friendly. It is a really good opportunity to socialise with other people in the college and meet new people whilst taking a break from studying.

Membership is £18 for the whole year or £50 for three years, and this goes towards pitch bookings for training and matches plus extra equipment needed. The membership gives you access to all of the college sport training and matches.

You can find details about training times and information about sports on our Instagram page.

Please feel free to come and try out a sport at any point in the year regardless of your ability as it is a really welcoming and inclusive environment! If you have any questions please contact a member of the sports committee or message the Instagram (@vanbrugh.sport).
