Kent Sport offers a range of ways to get involved with sport and be active during your time at University. From social through to competitive sports: enjoy informal recreational Let's Play sessions, one off sports events, through to a structured football programme we offer something for everyone.
Team Kent runs more than 60 different sports clubs, from American Football to Ultimate Frisbee and are open to all ability levels.
There are various opportunities to join social and competitive sports teams and leagues on campus for students, staff and alumni.

An inter-departmental staff competition for all abilities to encourage staff to keep active in a fun and non-threatening environment.
The [Couch to 5K] programme helped me get back into running. This is a truly fantastic and motivational programme which is great for runners and non-runners of all levels – it’s also a lot of fun and a great way to socialise!
