Sport in Bournemouth

Sport plays a significant role in the local economy and Bournemouth Football Club is now in the Premier League.  There are lots of opportunities to practise sport in Bournemouth and our students get involved in many different activities including walking, climbing and running as well as cycling and team sports.


There are over 10 golf courses within a 5 mile radius of Bournemouth.  We will be pleased to arrange golf tuition or arrange a game of golf if you wish.  Fees vary for golf but a good course can be found for as little as £15.00 per round.


Poole Harbour offers one of the world’s finest locations for watersports, including windsurfing, yachting and sea fishing.  You can also go surfing off Bournemouth beach.

Our reception and social staff are happy to advise students on all of the above activities and more.  The area has superb sporting facilities including tennis, swimming, water-skiing, jet skiing, horse riding, golf, sailing, dry-slope skiing, bowling, football, squash and athletics.  Bournemouth has an international events and conference centre and a number of leisure centres – all available for use by overseas students.  We can also help you with advice on weekend excursions.
