Sport for all

Get involved

You know that motto 'a healthy body means a healthy mind'? Well here at Essex it's not just your brain we're interested in training.

We know that exercise improves your mental well being, can help you keep calm during those stressful exam periods and boosts performance in your studies. 

We have something for everyone from informal drop-in Active sessions, easy to follow learn-to sports courses, a high-tech gym, over 200 monthly fitness classes, indoor and outdoor courts and pitches, and much more. You’re sure to have fun and make a load of new friends along the way.
