Reigate College aims to give all students an opportunity to enjoy sport and physical activity, whether as members of a College team (see below) or just for pleasure. Please see the College's Activities Programme and download the College's leaflet on Sport.
College teams compete in the Surrey Sixth Form Colleges League in the following sports:
- Mens' Football (3 teams),
- Ladies' Football,
- Mixed Hockey,
- Netball (2 teams),
Subect to demand, the College also runs teams in tennis, table tennis, badminton and swimming although the College is not able to offer team practice sessions in all these sports.
Trials are held during enrolment week and fixtures run throughout the academic year. Most teams compete on Wednesday afternoons and students should bear this in mind when finalising their timetables.
Opportunities also exist through AoC Sport for competing in Cross-country, Squash, Athletics, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Trampolining and Golf. The BCS organises tournaments, leagues and fixtures for Sixth Form and Tertiary Colleges, and gives students the opportunity to represent both South East Colleges and British Colleges in competitions.
