If you’re looking to play competitively representing King’s as an existing student or for a London community club as an alumna or staff member, you will find a number of clubs that you can join and more information right here.

WHY TAKE PART IN CLUB SPORT?

Each Community Club is recognized by King's Sport as a club which is associated with the College through its members, the majority of whom are alumni, present of former staff, or current students.

Every Community Club is encouraged to use King’s sports facilities wherever possible and is entitled to discounted facility use.   Furthermore it is a King’s Sport aim to provide for all members of the college community and we are always willing to help with any request: Do you take part in any sport with colleagues or alumni? Would you like to see more participants or help start a new King's Sport Community Club? King's Sport would like to hear from you! Contact us - here.

It is hoped that a Community Club will be established for each sport in which King’s competes and where there exists sufficient support. In sports where there is a medical student team, it is hoped a medical community team will be established and supported.

Students at King's benefit from being able to join any one of over 50 official student sports clubs. With such a large number, our sports teams play a large role both within the student community and more broadly in university life. 

Most of the sports clubs will compete nationally or regionally, either as part of the British Universities and Colleges Sports' (BUCS) league or the London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL).

 

Clubs

You can view our student club profiles and also join a club via the Student Union website - here.

Running or creating your club

King's Sport aims to cater for all our students but if you can't find a sport you like, we're happy to help you set up a new club.

Please refer to the Student Union webpages on setting up a new club - here.

Regarding the running of existing clubs, please take a look at the extensive advice and guidelines given by the Student Union - here.

For any further enquiries please feel free to contact us.

Non-competitive sport

If you want to participate in a sport, but prefer not to do so competitively, the BeActive Programme offers all students - from newcomers to enthusiasts - multiple sports and multiple sessions weekly.

Funded by generous funding from Sport England's University Activation Fund, BeActive sessions and sports are all run by fellow King's students with the support of professional coaches, instructors and national sporting bodies.

To find out more about BeActive, click - here.

There are also, plenty of external sports opportunities available to students in London. Get Active London provides a useful starting point for finding sports activities within the capital.

 

 alumni clubs banner

As part of the King's Sport ambition to encourage and promote health and fitness across the College community, we are working in partnership with both staff and with the University Alumni & Supporter Relations Department and the KCLA in order to develop sporting opportunities across the wider College community.

On this page you will find your hub for alumni and staff sport. At present there are several King's Sport Community Clubs which cater for members of staff and alumni looking to take part in organised sport.

Golf

KCLGS is the King’s College London Golf Society, which is an informal self-funding society of friends with a connection to King’s and an interest in playing social and competitive golf. The Society has been in existence for over 20 years.

Membership is open to all members of staff of King’s College London (academic, professional services and administrative staff are welcome), as well as to retired members of staff, friends of King’s College London and Alumni.

We currently have around 40 registered members, with a wide variety of handicaps, from beginner golfers (Society handicaps are allowable up to 36 for both men and women) to single-figure handicap players. We have a mix of male and female members who all have exactly the same rights. 

A typical event will consist of members making their own way to the chosen golf course (usually close to London), coffee and bacon rolls on arrival, 18 holes of social / competitive golf, and a two-course informal supper and prize-giving. A number of trophies are played for throughout the year, as well as the player of the year trophy. Spot prizes are also awarded at most events (nearest the pin, etc.).

Costs vary from £40 to £60 per event, depending on the golf course chosen, and are fully inclusive of green fees, food and prizes.  The Society meets 5 or 6 times through the summer, with a minimum of one event per month from May to September inclusive.
