This year we will combine Varsity with the official launch of the new sports pitches at Avery Hill. The £1.7m multi-purpose, flood lit, all-weather pitches will host our festival of sport. The fields are a new home for our Football, Hockey, Rugby, American Football & Lacrosse teams. With this additional facility our Student-Led Sports Teams can increase their membership & number of competitive teams, train at more convenient times and most importantly nearly end their dependence on outside venues. We’re proud of Team Greenwich’s new home and look forward to showing it off at Varsity.
