Did you know that as a UC staff member you can enjoy a free volleyball game at the RecCentre? Meet other UC staff and get a bit of healthy exercise into your lunch break. We’ve also got a sharp deal for squash court bookings coming up soon. Read on to find out more!
HOW DOES FREE VOLLEYBALL WORK?
On Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 noon, grab your staff ID and head over to the RecCentre. If you’re not a member, just stop at reception and sign in for Staff Volleyball. If you are a member, just swipe through as normal. Sessions run for one hour, and are for all levels. It’s self-refereeing and let’s just say the refereeing is relaxed.
On Fridays at 11am we are currently trialling a combined UC staff/UC student session for advanced players. The playing level is more competitive, so not suited to newbies so much. Same entry requirements as for Tuesdays/Thursdays.
Sessions finish at 5 minutes to the hour, and you are welcome to use the changing room facilities for a shower afterward. Please note that entry does not include use of any other area in the gym if you’re not a member.
While the sessions are for staff/students, should you wish to bring someone along who is neither, they can join in too (the regulars are a very welcoming bunch) BUT they’ll need to pay $11 casual entry or be a member (and of course, be over 16 years of age).
HOW DOES FREE SQUASH WORK?
For a limited time, we’re offering free squash court hire, and half price equipment hire. Casual entry fees ($11) or a membership are still required to access the facility. This promotion runs from 15 May until 25 June, and free court bookings are only available between 6am and 4pm. (ie: your booking is finished by 4pm), Monday to Friday.
Feel free to call our reception team or check our website for more information.
