Involvement in sport at Rhodes holds the promise of opportunity, achievement, enjoyment, the establishment of life long friendships and, above all, a well-rounded university experience. If you’re serious about your sporting and recreational pursuits and also want to experience the enjoyment and camaraderie that sport can provide, Rhodes University is the place for you!
Sports people at Rhodes form a closely-knit community. The friendly, intimate experience of the campus makes it easy to meet new people, and each sports club is a centre of social activities with meeting, practices, fixtures and fun events organised by students who are assisted by professional sports administrators.
All students are automatically members of the Sports Council, and as such are entitled to make use of the excellent facilities provided. All levels of sport are catered for, enabling both competitive and recreational sports people to fulfil their sporting ambitions. In addition, the inter residence programme remains popular.
There are some 31 clubs on offer covering a wide variety of interest areas and students are encouraged to take part on a social, recreational or competitive level.
