Sport and Leisure
If you want to keep fit and active Cambridge is a great place to be. Runners will love the many paths and tracks around the city, beside the River Cam and through the meadows combining good running routes with splendid views.
Head to one of the many green spaces in Cambridge where you can kick a ball, play cricket or try your hand at tennis. There are leisure centres and gyms with a choice of classes and personal trainers at hand to help devise the ultimate fitness programme.
Take to the water and swim at one of the city’s swimming pools or make the most of summer and head to Jesus Green where the open-air pool provides a perfect place to cool down on a sunny day.
Visitors keen to keep active can try their hand at punting or, if you prefer to slow the pace, sit back, relax and enjoy the view on a chauffeured punt.
Cambridge is a city of cyclists and there is no better way to explore the city and surrounding countryside than on two wheels.
Visitors and residents are encouraged to take part in the many sporting events that take place throughout the year, including various Cambridge walks, street games and other team sports including football and netball competitions for all ages.
