SPORT

…AND PLAY The borough has around 160 sports clubs which welcome men, women and children of all ages and backgrounds to watch or play. Hounslow’s most successful sports clubs include football, rugby, netball and gymnastics which compete at regional and national levels. Brentford Fountain Leisure Centre, at 658 Chiswick High Road, hosts

several national competitions in volleyball, basketball and netball and, along with the borough’s five other leisure centres, provides swimming pools with flumes, health suites, fitness studios and fantastic soft play areas – all activities to enjoy on a rainy day.

Oxford at the end of the Boat Race, Chiswick

The world renowned, annual rowing contest between Oxford and Cambridge universities is a huge draw, whether you’re into rowing or just looking for a free perch from which to see the action. In 2014, for the first time, the women’s eight competed

on the same course on the same day as the men’s. So now there’s double the fun to be had. Each race starts in Putney and ends at Chiswick Bridge, next to Dukes Meadows, arguably the best place to be when the contests reach their peak.
