Whitgift Sports Club
The Whitgift Sports Club is an “Open” Club that welcomes members from the local community and beyond. It was founded in 1890 and has operated from its current Clubhouse and Grounds since 1929.
In addition to offering probably the widest range of sporting activities in Surrey, our comfortable lounge and bar facilities are available to members and their guests at weekends and also most mid-week evenings.
We offer Senior and Junior Rugby (over 200 youngsters from 6 to 16 receive coaching and play matches on a Sunday morning in the season). Our Senior 1st XV plays in the Surrey League I with the Wanderers and Warriors XVs also in their respective Leagues.
The Cricket 1st XI competes in the Saturday Surrey One League with the 2nd and 3rd XI also in competitive Leagues. Colts coaching and matches take place during the week and at weekends.
Our two Football teams play in London Leagues at an intermediate level and are always looking for more players.
Our Hockey Section is thriving and has four Mens’ and three Ladies’ teams who play on Saturdays. All matches are played on Astro pitches, usually close to Croydon.
We have two Water Polo teams who compete at a high level in the Regional Leagues and home matches take place in the superb facilities at the Whitgift Health Club at Haling Park, South Croydon.
Finally. Hard Court Tennis is played in the Summer evenings (April to September) at the Old Palace Prep School which is 300 yards from the Clubhouse.
