Students' Union Sporting Events

The Student's Union organises Escape, the RCA's society for everything Sport and Adventure. Want to get fit, find a sport, or just get out more? This is your escape route...

Escape will organise anything from running in Hyde Park, squash and football, to climbing, canoeing and adventure weekends away. If you can think of a sport, Escape will try it! Events are publicised via College emails and the poster boards around College buildings.

If you have anything to ask get in touch with the Escape team by emailing

The Students' Union also organises a very informal football match every Wednesday in Hyde Park. No booking required; just turn up.

Location: Hyde Park, between the Albert Memorial and Prince's Gate entrance

Date: Every Wednesday during term-time
