Sport and Physical Activity

Taking part in some form of activity, sport or exercise as part of your college life has many benefits.

It keeps you fit and healthy both in body and mind; you meet new people; make friends; it’s a great way of releasing stress; and it definitely keeps a smile on your face. We work with local sports clubs, sports centres, gyms, sports facilities and a whole range of different coaches to deliver a wide range of activities. 

Our College Sports Maker Alistair's main focus is to make whichever activity or sport you choose to get involved in fun and enjoyable. We love it when students take the lead in activities and help run events and for their follow students.

The college works alongside different organisations to help bring sport and activities to the student community. Working with the Gloucestershire FA, Gloucestershire Cricket Board, Somerset FA, The RFU, Olympia Boxing, Trojan Fitness, Empire Fighting Chance, City of Bristol Gymnastics, All Aboard Water Sports and Spin City Fitness Studio, to name just a few.

So what are we talking here?
All our sports and activities are for both men and women teams, mixed classes, and women and men only classes. The sports and activities can range from 5 a-side football,  Indoor cricket, Basketball (full court and 3 v 3 tournaments), Boxing and Box Fitness, Gymnastics, Badminton, Netball, Volleyball, Parkour and gym workouts- including different classes such as Dance, Hip Hop, Pole Fitness,  Zumba and Yoga.

How do we make all these different activities available to you?
There will be tournaments and events running throughout the year for team sports, activities and classes to sign up to at different times within your timetable. This could be during a space on your timetable, lunchbreak, tutorial time or when you’ve finished your days study. Look out for information on the Plasma Screens around the sites, our Facebook page, Twitter feed, vocaleyes.org, Wamedu App, and through your study groups.
