In 2004 Mr Stephen Metcalfe was asked by Mr Johannes Oentoro to create a new Sports Department for UPH and was named its director. With the help and guidance from Mr James Riady, the Sports Department was established, and the facilities began to be built: the first is the sports centre, a multi-sport venue. The program has grown and has always maintained its strong vision and purpose. Since the beginning, the department has had success and has established itself as a major influencer among Indonesian sports organizations. The Lord willing, we will continue to pursue excellence as we strive to bring glory to God in all we do.
ISL is a league between departments where students compete to represent their respective faculties/departments. Sports that are contested include basketball, soccer, swimming, futsal, and dodgeball.
