Sports Hub Appeal Challenges

The King’s College Sports Hub project has now evolved to include three exciting phases.

Phase One will see the cricket school completed;

Phase Two will involve a covering for our tennis and netball courts to create an all-weather facility;

Phase Three will be major improvements to the current Sports Hall plus an indoor climbing wall.

As a way to involve the whole school in our Sports Hub Appeal, we have created a series of physical challenges that are set to take place on Thursday 30 June:

  • 5km fun-run around the school playing fields – can you achieve a sub 40/30/20 minute time?
  • Swim the Channel – help achieve the Channel distance of 21 miles in our pool and swim as many lengths as you can.
  • Climb Ben Nevis – help achieve the 1445m climb which equates to 181 ascents of our climbing wall.

There are some fun-run beginner and intermediate training programmes available from reception and there will be some training sessions next term.

Most of our Senior Management Team have agreed to take part in one of the challenges and hopefully we can encourage our Heads of Departments and House staff to also lead the way!

So, get running, swimming, climbing or have a go at all three!

Details can be found in the main reception and the reception area of the swimming pool.
