ComePlaySport LogoCome Play Sport

Please allow me to introduce Come Play Sport - London's first genuine sports and social club where people of all abilities can "come play" exciting new sports like dodgeball, inner tube water polo, volleyball and unihoc in a fun and sociable atmosphere across London. Every big city in North America has a sport and social club which is the lifeblood of the sports community and social network - now its London's turn...

We believe that team sports in London are currently dominated by highly competitive teams and intimidating clubs. Come Play is unique in this respect - we welcome players of all abilities and experience, and you "come play" to try new things, meet people and enjoy getting fit.
The great thing about Come Play is that as well as entering a team, you can also enter as an individual, taking away those horrible first days at club where everyone knows each other but you! A 14 week season (including play-offs) playing at least 2 sports costs only £75 for individuals or £800 for a team. 

Rufus Hack (BBA 2004) is offering a 10% discount to alumni and families.
