I am very passionate about sport (esp. hockey and squash.) How easy is it to play sport at Kings? Are the facilities close by? The prospectus doesn't really say much about it, it just says "there are 4 sports grounds scattered around London" London is very very big! How far away are all these fields etc??

Thanks if anyone can help me

Unfortunately the playing fields where football/rugby et al are played are out near Surbiton (Berrylands, specifically)... about 25 minutes from Waterloo IIRC.

We sold our old grounds at Cobham to Chelsea FC, who have built their new training complex there.

Hey I am planning on playing hockey at Kings and from a few people I know it would appear that Hockey is played over towards the oval.

Oval is in South London. It's a few stops away from Charing Cross/Waterloo...

Badminton is played at Fusion Leisure centre at Elephant and Castle, which is about 7mins bus journey from strand bus stop and about the same from Guys campus.
