Our core work involves supporting 14 degree programmes and over 30 student sports clubs, and added to this Sport St Mary’s is committed to developing participation at every level through several flourishing programmes.

We offer sport for students at all levels, from social sport through to elite athlete support. A range of sporting scholarships are available to students, as are a number of coaching opportunities. Students can also claim a discount on Sport St Mary’s gym membership and fitness classes.

SIMMSport offers weekly coaching and holiday camps to 5-16 year-olds; SIMMSactive provides a broad programme of recreational opportunities for students and staff, and the world renowned Endurance Performance and Coaching Centre (EPACC) fosters the development of elite runners.

In addition, the wide range of local clubs regularly using the facilities provides a valuable community link which enhances sporting life at St Mary’s. The world-class facilities on the main campus and at Teddington Lock have functioned as Olympic pre-Games training camps and were used as a Team Base during the Rugby World Cup 2015.
