About us.

Sport and active health Sport and active health are exciting parts of the Christ Church experience. The University’s multi-million-pound Sports Centre has the latest fitness equipment in our state-of-the-art gym, a full range of fitness classes, and a personal training service. Additionally, we provide many free programmes centred around student and staff wellbeing, including Couch to 5k, active lifestyles mentoring, a running club and an outdoor bootcamp to help you stay active and healthy.

At Christ Church, our students will find a wide range of club sports on offer; many of our teams regularly compete in the British Universities and Colleges Sports leagues and a variety of other competitions, including the annual Varsity event. And through Christ Church Sport & Active Health you will also have access to our joint specialist facility, Polo Farm Sports Club. Just a short distance from the Canterbury Campus, the facilities include three floodlit hockey pitches, an indoor tennis centre, outdoor tennis courts and a spacious sports hall, specialising in netball, hockey and cricket. Additionally, the University has five grass sports pitches for football and rugby, and through partnership with local clubs, we offer golf, kayaking, equestrian, trampoline and athletics facilities.

Open seven days a week and featuring the latest equipment, our Sports Centre has something for everyone. Whether you’re serious about training and competing or would simply like to be more active and get a little fitter, you’ll have access to our interactive spin studio, exciting fitness classes, modern gym, climbing wall and double sports hall.

Christ Church Sport & Active Health additionally offer dozens of opportunities for both students and staff to get involved in social sport, with all equipment provided and no experience necessary.
