Sport is deep lying in the roots of Sheffield and its people and we take enormous pride in the city’s rich sporting heritage. For starters, we’re the National City of Sport and home to two massive football teams (United and Wednesday in case you forgot!). We’ve even got the oldest football club in the world, Sheffield FC – that’s not to mention rugby (union and league), ice hockey and basketball teams. We also boast the prestigious English Institute of Sport, regularly blessed by our very own Olympic Gold Medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill and Yorkshire Jets netball team.
That’s not all, Sheffield is known as the Outdoor City with the stunning Peak District on our doorstep, creating unrivalled opportunities to take yourself away from it all and into the great outdoors to go walking, climbing and cycling.
At The Sheffield College you will have the chance to be part of The Sheffield College Titans – our very own and exclusive sports club – and continue the city’s sporting legacy. Our hugely successful competitive teams in Football, Basketball, Netball, and Hockey, give you the opportunity to develop your skills with us whilst representing the college at national level in the British College’s League. You don’t have to be enrolled on a sport course to play for our college teams and we also have many students representing the country in all kinds of sports including boxing, badminton, and swimming.
But if you’d rather just get involved for a bit of fun, we can do that for you too! We have fantastic enrichment activities set up by our Sport Makers (they’re people whose job it is to make more sports opportunities for you!) ranging from table tennis to 5-a-side football. As a student you’ll also have access to our gym facilities and sports halls if you would like to book them for your own 5-a-side match for example.
Our sports facilities are mightily impressive. Our floodlit, all-weather pitch at Hillsborough is 3G and has markings for a full-sized football pitch, three 7-a-side pitches, as well as a hockey pitch. We also have fully equipped gyms, sports halls and brand new dance studios for you! If you love sport, this is the place to be.
