Sports Clubs at Jesus College

The College offers excellent sports facilities, and all are welcome to use these, whether as a serious athlete, or just for fun.

There are many opportunities to try new sports, and join one of the College teams to play other colleges, which operate at all levels of expertise. You can also start your own sports club, if there’s a sport your passionate about pursuing during your time at Jesus.

We currently have;

  • Mixed Teams in Lacross, Ice Hockey, Tennis, Netball, Croquet, Dancesport, Chess, Athletics and Cue
  • Men’s Teams in Rowing, Football, Football Reserves, Basketball, Cricket, Squash and Rugby
  • Women’s Teams in Rowing and Football (JCR) teams.

We have squash courts and extensive playing fields with hockey, cricket, football and rugby pitches, hard grass tennis courts, netball courts, and a sports pavilion. We also have our own boathouse on the River Thames, with boats used all year round by our rowing crews, from novices to experienced rowers. Students can use the University’s swimming pool and next-door athletics stadium and gym free of charge. You can also join a range of University sports clubs, including Wild Swimmers – a cold water swimming group founded by Jesus undergraduates.
