Sports

Oxford provides facilities for a wide range of sports at a variety of standards, enabling students both to continue activities that they already enjoy and to try out something new.

St Peter’s shares a sports field with Hertford and Exeter colleges, providing two cricket pitches and pavilions, two rugby and football pitches, a hockey pitch, tennis courts and a squash court.  Our rowers share a boat house with University College.  

Sport at St Peter's goes from strength to strength every year. This is shown by the fact that the 2013/14 season was one of huge success for SPCBC. Both the men's 1st VIII and women's 2nd VIII won blades in June, meaning that they 'bumped' on every day of Summer Eights. The men's side also won Worcester Regatta in a coxed four, and it should not be forgotten that Karl Hudspith won his third Boat Race, as well as rowing for SPCBC. As well as the many triumphs for SPCBC, successes were experienced by many other Peter's sports teams, including the Men's hockey 1sts. The cuppers tournament of 2014 saw the SPC Men's 1sts progress to the semi finals, which was a vast improvement on performances in previous years.

However, at Peter's, it isn't all about winning. This year, SPC had the largest turnout of all the colleges at the mixed lacrosse cuppers tournament, with an astounding 26 players. This epitomises the St. Peter's College sprit towards sport - whilst many of the players had never picked up a stick before, they were more than willing to give up both their time and energy for the good of the college.

Other popular sporting highlights at Peter's include the finalists vs. non finalist annual football game, the infamous SPC darts team (which now has T-Shirts thanks to the JCR fund) and the new and up and coming college rounders society. Sport at St Peter's is something which genuinely can be enjoyed by all, from the fiercely competitive to the most easy going of sports men and women, there is a sporting niche for all at SPC.
