Get your face paint, we’re going to watch the game!
Welcome to Worcester, where we’re mad on live sports and proud of our players.
From our brave Worcester Warriors to our crafty cricketers, if you love watching the game in the flesh, you’re going to love it here. Here’s four places you’ll be calling home during your time at uni (besides Tramps...).

You’ll no doubt be very familiar with Worcester Racecourse. It sits between St John’s campus and Charles Hastings, and it’s also mentioned in Peaky Blinders! Here you can watch the races or look on as poor owners run after their dogs. Add the race days to your calendar here and get ready to buy those fancy hats.

Do you like cricket? Of course you do! There’s always plenty going on here, and there’s also a scrumptious cafe to take advantage of too, because cheering on the team is hard work! Take a look at the fixtures here and start practicing the face paint.

Head over to Sixways and see some of Rugby’s mightiest warriors fly the flag for Worcester. While Rugby is one of its main attractions, Sixways also hosts plenty of concerts, benefits and comedy nights just to name a few. You can even get married there (although we do advise that you wait at least 2 working days after a game before making such a decision...). See what’s on here.

Like getting down and dirty? Not only can you watch all the Motorcross action, you can take part in it too! Apex Motorcross is actually one of the longest established, permanent motocross practice facilities in the UK, so if the studies aren’t going as planned, you could always try and become a motocross champion! See how to get in on the action here.
We’ve not mentioned the Arena here, because you should know all about that already. You are a student at Worcester University, after all. That means you should be supporting those Wolves at every home game – no excuses!
