River, rink or ring, a proud sporting culture

Wolfson athletes compete at Collegiate and University level, often earning their Blues, in a wide variety of sports from tennis to Tiddlywinks.

At Wolfson, we pride ourselves on having ‘one of the two best college gyms in Cambridge’ (the other one being at Jesus) – an opinion held by virtually all University-level athletes. Given how much Cambridge students usually reserve their praise for their own colleges, this is impressive.

The refurbishment of the gym in 2018 was presided over by former WCSA Sports Officer Dennis Mubaiwa, who knows a thing or two about weights.

However, lifting weights is not the only way that Wolfson students shake out the stresses of academic life and find balance for their mental and physical well-being. Many sports societies are active at College, most notably our rowers and the very successful men’s football team.

We even have an official Wolfson team in Tiddlywinks – a sport considerably less well-known and possibly even more Cambridge than Quidditch!

We also have a variety of dance societies offering tango, Latin nights and ballroom dancing.
