How To Join A Club

We would love you to be a part of #Teamkingston. We have lots of clubs for you to choose from and it's pretty easy to sign up. 

At start of term, the best place to find out about our clubs is at Freshers Fair (Wednesday 18th September 2019) at Clayhill halls of residence where all our clubs will be available to give you more information. If not, have a look at our online A-Z of all our clubs

You can then join our clubs for a taster session to see if you like it, you have a couple of weeks to try it and then you will need to buy a sports membership for £50.

Once you have bought this you can select the club(s) you wish to join, each club membership is £5.

Sports Memberships are valid for the academic year they are purchased in, after which they must be renewed if you wish to remain a member of any Club.

Refund requests may only be granted within 28 days of purchase.  Requests should be put into writing and marked for the attention of the Sports Development Co-ordinator, sportsclubs@kingston.ac.uk - proof of payment must be supplied
