St Edmund’s College has a number of active sports societies which play recreationally and participate in competitive intercollegiate events. Beginners and experienced players alike are always welcomed and encouraged to take part. For more information about sports at Eddies, see email addresses below

What sports can I play at Eddie's?

Depending on the year, St Edmund's fields college teams for a variety of sports, including rowing, football, rugby, mixed netball, ultimate frisbee, cricket, croquet, badminton, and pool. Kit is also available for casual games on site. Student-run classes of yoga and tabata occur weekly. And we also own three punts, which are usually docked at St John's.

For more information, contact the Sports Officer (

or the CR Secretary (


Sign-ups for college sports clubs will occur during the College Freshers’ Fair during Freshers’ Week.


Punting at Eddie's

The CR has three punts – Edmund of Abingdon, Richard Laws, and a new punt. They are moored in St John’s College and are available for use by student members of the College in spring and summer months. The maintenance and running costs of the punts comes directly from the CR fee.

Punting forms a very important part of the Cambridge experience. The scenic views of Cambridge and its colleges along the river are ones you won't get unless you're in a punt ! You can learn how to do it yourself (it's incredibly easy), or you can take guided tours organised by students. 

Punts can be reserved up to seven (7) days in advance, for up to four (4) hours per day. Each person is only permitted to make one reservation per day. The punts are available from 8am-8pm.

* Due to the Covid situation, the punt is not available. We are so sorry for the inconvenience.
