Welcome to the Reading Knights American Football Club. We are a successful team that play our competitive matches in BUCS Division 1A South. Coming off the back of another successful season, in which we made the playoffs for the second season in successive, we are looking to strengthen our squad with players of all shapes and sizes welcome, as we look to be able to compete for the division title this year and hope to push on further in the playoffs. This will set us up for big things in the coming year, especially with the return of our residential weekend training camp at Wellington College in October.
You don’t need to have any experience or knowledge of the sport, just turn up with the right attitude and our team of coaches will have you scoring touchdowns in no time! We have a great community spirit and love welcoming new members with regular socials and get togethers - you’ll always find us watching NFL games on a Sunday night in Park Bar.
We have a good relationship with the Knights Cheerleading Team and have regular events with them, both sporting and social.
Make sure you stop by during the Freshers Sports Fayre to chat to our committee members and sign up for our taster day. If you ever spot us chucking a ball around on campus, don’t hesitate to come say hello. Membership includes training fees, match registration, kit hire and socials.
