We love to support and celebrate our teams sporting achievements

Our Men’s Football team finished top of the division two LUSL league for the 2017/2018 season; after an impressive season of consecutive wins. The 2018/2019 season will spark the inception of our new Men’s football second team and the club’s participation in the BUCS Southeastern League, for the first time in Regent’s history.

Our Men’s Basketball team reached the LUSL Cup Final for the 2017/ 2018 season, where they narrowly missed out on claiming the title. This was the first Regent’s team to ever progress this far and reach the LUSL cup final match. 

Our Polo teams compete in Winter and Summer SUPA National tournaments. In the 2017/ 2018 Winter Nationals Regent’s had both a beginner and Lower Intermediate team competing in the tournament.  This was the first time Regent’s had two teams enter for the University Nationals Tournament. 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.
