Dulwich College Sports Club is situated in West Dulwich, South East London and lies opposite Dulwich College, one of the most historical and prestigious schools in London. Famous former Dulwich College boys include ex England rugby players such as Andrew Sheridan, Nick Easter and David Flatman who were all regularly users of the Dulwich College Sports Centre gym.Dulwich College Sports Centre booking South London

Nowadays the Dulwich College Sports Centre is used by both the school and local members and has an excellent range of sports facilities. Most of these are reserved for members, which represents very good value for money. Facilities on offer include a fully equipped gym, indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, squash courts, multi-use sports hall, AstroTurf and athletics track.

However even if you are a non-member, there are still plenty of activities which local Dulwich residents can join in. A good place to start is the extensive range of fitness classes on offer including Butts, Legs and Tums (BLT), Pilates, Yoga, Trampoline, Circuits and Zumba . You can find out further information about the Dulwich College Sports Club Classes here which take place throughout the week.

Aside from the Dulwich College fitness classes, another popular activity for non-members is Freedom Football which takes places every Monday from 7pm to 9pm on the AstroTurf and indoors every Wednesday from 9pm to 1opm. You can join in these very friendly football sessions for £5 on a pay and play basis or can sign up for approximately £17.50 a month. In our opinion £17.50 for eight to nine sessions of football month is incredibly good value and it is open to all standards.

Another popular community activity is No Strings Badminton which takes place in the Dulwich College sports hall from 6pm to 8pm on Thursdays and 9am to 12pm on Sundays. This relaxed badminton session is open to everyone for only £5 a session and is an initiative from Badminton England who are keen to promote their increasingly popular racquets sport. The format is open games, usually on rotation so you can turn up by yourself or with others and start playing. Furthermore there's no need to worry about committing as each session is drop-in for around £5 a go and fits easily around your schedule. Hopefully some other sports bodies will follow suit as really is an excellent initiative.


Getting to Dulwich College Sports Club

Dulwich College Sports Centre Car Park

By Car: There is a car park directly outside the sports centre, however spaces are at a premium and club members get priority. You should also be wary that balls can fly over the top from the adjacent AstroTurf. The sports centre lies opposite Dulwich College along Dulwich Common (up Pond Cottages) and is just off the South Circular (A205) so it is difficult to miss.

By train: The nearest train station is West Dulwich which is approximately 5-10 minutes' walk away at the other side of Dulwich College

Overall Dulwich College Sports Club represents excellent value for money and has superb sports facilities to offer Dulwich residents and beyond.
