In partnership with the Federation of International Polo, Regent’s offers two Polo Scholarships places each year for new and current excelling polo playing students.

Our Women’s basketball team is one of the newest teams that joined Regent’s Sport for the 2017/2018, funded by Sport England. This team was our first female only competitive sports team that have represented Regent’s in LUSL competitions.
