Sports and Recreation

Whether you’re a fitness buff, recreational athlete or just a sports fan, it’s all here for you. Yale students and staff can use athletic facilities and receive free admission to most Yale home sporting events, including football at the historic Yale Bowl. New Haven parks offer miles of green space for running, biking, hiking, and canoeing. It’s only a short drive or bike ride to the shoreline with New England-style beaches for swimming and water sports. Plus, enjoy world class tennis every August at the New Haven Open at Yale Tennis Tournament.
