We know that sport and fitness are an integral part of people’s lives. That’s why we encourage staff, students and our local community to get involved at Royal Holloway Sport.

We're recognised as one of the University of London’s best sporting colleges. 

Our sports programme ranges from supporting world-class athletes, performance & competitive sport and recreational sport. We have 80 sports teams with more than 1,300 members competing in BUCS and LUSL competitions. 

Over 3,500 students engage with Royal Holloway Sport whether they are using our fitness suite, attending an exercise class, hiring a facility or giving a new sport a go at our Active sessions.

You can also enjoy high-quality facilities both on- and off-campus, in which we continually invest. In 2013, we refurbished our campus-based Sports Centre to increase the number of classes we deliver. In 2014 we installed a new third generation (3G) rugby and football pitch to provide a first-class playing surface alongside a sand based hockey astroturf pitch and refurbished squash courts. 

In the summer of 2018 we upgraded our fitness facilities. This included a number of different improvements including opening up the space giving us more room for more of your favourite pieces of equipment as well as some new additions. Among these additions there are ski ergs, L-trains, a plate-loaded leg press, squat machine and a whole new rig with integrated storage for all of our dumbbells, medicine balls and kettlebells.

The entire flooring has been replaced including an extended functional training area with flooring that is suitable for Olympic lifting and our new treadmills have some neat features such as social media access and virtual training for the times you fancy a jog across a beach or by a lake.

We have also refurbished Jane Holloway Studio as our designated group exercise class studio with a new music and lighting system and new flooring for a better class experience. From Studio Cycling, to Legs, Bums & Tums, to some Les Mills favourites, there are over 25 classes on offer every week.
