Sport Sport is good for both the body and the mind, so from beginners to international athletes we offer every boy the opportunity to get involved and to develop in a wide range of sporting activities. Our Sports Centre is equipped with an eight-lane swimming pool, squash courts, a climbing wall and a series of fitness suites, as well as a martial arts and fencing studio. We also have 60 acres of sports pitches, including all-weather surfaces for hockey, football, rugby and athletics, and have a boathouse on the River Thames within easy reach of the school. Both individual and team achievement is important and every boy is expertly coached to reach his full potential. There are frequent opportunities to compete and our boys have enjoyed great success at regional, national and international levels. We value sport not only for its health and fitness benefits but also for the camaraderie, teamwork and self-motivation it inspires, and we’re proud of the renowned dedication and good-sportsmanship of all our Abingdon teams.
