Mansfield College Crest

As well as all of the societies Mansfield has to offer, we also join forces with Merton College to provide some of the best college teams in Oxford. If you’re interested in playing a sport but don’t feel you’re at the standard to compete at university-level, this is where the collegiate system works to your advantage. College first teams are slightly more competitive, depending on the sport, and offer 2nd teams for those who are more relaxed
