Welcome to Atalanta’s
Oxford University’s Club for elite sportswomen
Atalanta’s is the leading society that seeks to promote women in sport and to enhance the careers of elite sportswomen who study at the University of Oxford. Founded in 1992, we have grown as a society over the years and now have a wide network of resident members from over 20 different sports teams across the university, as well as a strong alumni database.
Women’s sport at Oxford has gone from strength to strength in the last few years. Moments of particular excitement were the first time the Ladies Blues Boat joined the men on the Thames to participate in the annual, televised Varsity Boat Race in 2015, and the Women’s Rugby Blues playing at Twickenham in 2016. It is wonderful that these fixtures are now constants in the Oxford sporting calendar. Atalanta’s will continue to support female athletes and help them to achieve their potential. The 2017/18 committee aims to ensure that Atalanta’s continues to grow and offers interesting, fun and beneficial opportunities for all its members.
Our website will give you an overview of Atalanta’s: our current committee; membership eligibility and benefits; the grants and outreach programmes we offer; upcoming Atalanta’s events; and also our current sponsors.
