Face coverings are now essential in and around Herts Sports Village and Oval for all members, customers and staff. Face coverings can be removed when exercising but they must be put back on when moving around including in the changing rooms. Thank you for protecting the health of our Sports Village/Oval community.
If you are an avid football player or just want a regular game each week, then get yourself involved in the HertSquad campus based football programme.
Renowned for providing a great social setting to play football with your friends, course mates or house mates against other students in our semesterly leagues.
The student programme includes an 8-a-side football league and 6-a-side football leagues.
If you are a student looking for a team to join or you are student captain looking for extra players to join your squad, then come along to one of our FREE 'Get Involved in Football' sessions. Details of these sessions can be found below.
In addition to the football leagues above, Active Students also run recreational turn up and play football sessions including a women’s only session 'Goals 4 Girls'. For more information on these sessions, please click here.
All of the above run in both Semester A and Semester B and have a presence at both campuses.

Covid-19 - Keeping you safe
This is a Covid secure activity.
We are following FA Covid-19 guidance. Here are just some of the things we are putting in place and we ask you to help us in keeping everyone safe:
Controlling the number of participants in to the facility. Sorry, no spectators.
Wristband session allocation and social distancing on arrival
Sanitise hands regularly
Rotating playing ball
Separate entry and exit points
It is important to note the following changes to the game:
Be aware of your own personal health. If you show any of the Covid-19 symptoms you must stay at home, inform NHS Test and Trace and seek medical advice.
Practise good hygiene. Wash your hands regularly and before, during and after a game.
Where possible maintain social distancing. This won’t always be possible in a competitive match environment (for example when tackling an opponent) and that is acceptable. However, before, and after a game you should maintain social distancing
Do not spit. Spitting and the rinsing out of mouths is now a recognised risk to health and must not be done.
Avoid shouting or raising your voice if face-to-face with other players
