SPORT AT PEMBROKE
Pembroke boasts a huge range of sports clubs, and has has its own sports ground a 10 minute walk from the College, consisting of two football pitches, a rugby pitch, two cricket nets, two grass tennis courts, three hard tennis/netball courts and a newly renovated pavilion.
Pembroke boat house is also located close by and includes a basic gym and bar facilities.
Both men and women, undergraduates and graduates, play sport at a high level. Rowing is a particular strength and we have two of the best boat crews on the river.
There is a PureGym a stone's throw from Pembroke on St Ebbe's Street which is offering a 20%+ membership discount to students who book via UNiDays. Offer details are available here.
Students returning early at the start of term for University-level (or higher, e.g. national squad) training camps will be eligible for a 50% discount on the nightly rate for their College room - please contact the Bursars' Secretary in the first instance.
Even if you don’t play sport to a particularly high level, Pembroke has a lot to offer. Anyone can take part and it is common for students to try out a completely new sport whilst at Oxford.
Most sports have two competitions which run simultaneously: a League competition and an intercollegiate competition know as “Cuppers”.
There are a number of prizes and grants available to sportspeople at Pembroke - details are available here.
If you have any queries regarding sport at Pembroke please don’t hesitate to contact the Sports Rep, Sam Gisby.

Pembroke is traditionally one of Oxford’s strongest cricketing Colleges and we pride ourselves on being consistent contenders for both league and Cuppers glory. The college runs three teams, two men’s XIs and one woman’s team and despite having strong sporting aspirations Pembroke College Cricket Club is very much a social affair.
Women's Captain: tbc
Pembroke has two successful netball teams, with the first team recently enjoying promotion to the 1st Division. Pembroke Netball is an amazing opportunity for students to get out on the courts and play once a week in Michaelmas and Hilary, culminating in a day’s Cuppers tournament at the start of Trinity.
Women’s Captain: Libby Munro
The Pembroke mixed lacrosse team is open to people of all standards. Most of our team last year had never picked up a lacrosse stick before in their life. Mixed sport is a great way to get to know people within your college and across the university. ‘Cuppers’ takes place throughout Michaelmas with a tournament in Trinity.
Captain: Esme Wilson
