Kate Middleton

Here’s a complete list of Duchess Kate’s favourite sports.


Ever since she was a little girl, Kate Middleton has thrown herself into any physical activity or sports she could, and it’s set her in very good stead.

Do you believe those killer calf muscles and toned arms sculpt themselves without any sports? No way!

At school, she was on the team for tennis, field hockey, swimming, netball, and rounders; and as she hit her 20s and 30s, she has kept some of these sports in her repertoire, ditched others, and added some new ones. So how does the duchess stay in shape with sports?


Kate (pictured third from left, below) has been so passionate about the sport from an early age that she had the tennis court at Anmer Hall remodelled before she moved in, and she plays on it frequently, both with her husband Prince William and her sister Pippa. One year, Kate was even spotted playing tennis on Christmas Day, and the Middleton family tennis coach was invited to the royal wedding.

One of the many ways that Kate keeps fit is by taking action-packed vacations! She has skied with her family since she was young and hits the slopes with William most years. Last year, they took Prince George and Princess Charlotte skiing for the first time, showing how important the sporty break is to them. William has even admitted in the past that his wife is better than him at the sport.

Kate used to cycle all over town when she first moved to London, and she and William still like to get on their bikes around their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Field Hockey

Kate left field hockey behind when she finished school but has shown her flair for the sport on assorted royal engagements as an adult.

Running has also been a favourite of the duchess for many years, and it is another activity over which she and William first bonded when they were at university together. The pair used to go on early morning runs before breakfast. It has been reported that Kate still runs now in the Norfolk countryside.
