Sports and recreation at Carrington

A key aspect of the balanced Carrington lifestyle is sport and recreation. There are a range of opportunities and facilities that you can use to get some fresh air, hang out with your friends, and stay healthy.

Sports at Carrington

Our community loves getting out and competing against other Colleges. We are keen participants in Sports Day (a premier Orientation event), the Inter-College Competition that runs throughout the academic year, and the Stuart Shield (our annual competition against our sister College, Arana).

We also have a range of intra-college sporting competitions, including our infamous dodgeball tournament in Orientation Week.

Music at Carrington

We are a very musical College, and we love to find opportunities to make music together! Whether through performing at our musical jams, singing with the Carringtones (our College choir), or practicing your instrument of choice in one of our common areas, we love and encourage participation in the arts. We are well-equipped for musicians, with various spaces available for practice and three pianos located around the College. We are currently working on a dedicated music space for 2021!

Recreation at Carrington

In addition to providing high-quality facilities for study, we are thrilled to offer exceptional recreation facilities for relaxation and socialising. Our tennis court is always in motion with students engaging in activities like basketball, netball, badminton, jogging, jump jam and tennis…sometimes all at once! We also offer a small cardio gym, pool (billiards) room, table tennis, and a retro arcade console with over 2,000 games!
