Sport Imperial and Imperial College Union have joined forces to create a new joint vision for sport.

Over the next four years this strategy will look to promote, support and enable our students and staff to enjoy a more active lifestyle. With six overarching objectives, we hope to positively impact all aspects of sport and physical activity at Imperial.


This strategy, and the fundamental changes it brings to sport and physical activity at the College, has the potential to make a sustainable and positive impact on the lifestyles, experience and wellbeing of our people for the better."
