Sports

All students are entitled to make use of the sports facilities and join one or more of the 31 clubs which are affiliated to Sports Council.

A small annual fee is charged for each sports club which a student joins, and each club is a centre of social activities, with meetings, practices, fixtures and fun events organized by the students, who are assisted by full-time sports administrators

Many clubs play in competitive provincial leagues, whilst some also offer internal leagues. Because not all students enjoy playing competitive sport, the Residence System offers students the opportunity for social and less competitive team sport. The Sports Rep on House Committee is charged with organizing such events.

In addition, the Rhodes Health Suite offers weight training, aerobics and spinning classes. The weight training facility consists of cardio-vascular, circuit and free-weight training sections and instructors are available to assist with personal training programmes.

A student on financial aid is offered either full or partial rebate to join two clubs or two sections of the Health Suite, depending on the student’s financial aid category.
