FREE staff sport lunchtime sessions at the RecCentre

How about getting out at lunchtime for some friendly sporting action? The Rec & Sport team are pleased to offer several sessions a week, where UC Staff can pop over to the RecCentre and get active for an hour, absolutely free. You don’t have to be a member.

How does it work?
Turn up to the RecCentre with your Staff ID card. This is essential, no matter how often you come. We’ll get you to sign in as a casual visitor (for H&S), then you can get in there and play. We don’t set it up for you, so if you’re first to arrive, you can swap your staff card to borrow the gear and start setting up. That’s it. Your free entry doesn’t entitle to you use the fitness facilities while you’re here, but you are welcome to use the showers after. BYO towel, or rent ours for just $1.

The Sports
Until the end of 2018, we are offering the following time slots for UC Staff to participate:

Tuesday 12pm – 1pm Volleyball Sportshall All levels
Wednesday 1pm – 2pm Badminton Sportshall All levels
Thursday 12pm – 1pm Volleyball Sportshall All levels
Friday 11am – 12pm Volleyball Sportshall Int – Experienced staff and students
Friday 12pm – 1pm Futsal Sportshall All levels

All equipment is provided, although you can bring your own badminton racquets if you prefer, as we only have a limited number.
The plan for 2019.

Recently, UC RecCentre and UC Sport amalgamated to become UC Rec & Sport. Our new team will be doing things a little differently in 2019.

Free Staff Sport Sessions
We’ll continue to offer free staff sport hours, commencing in February, and we’ll set the days and times, once we know what timeslots are available. Show us with your feet what the demand is, and we’ll try to get the mix just right.

Social Sport Leagues
Staff and community will now be able to enter what our social sport leagues! Get a team together and play in a regular weekly match. We offer Futsal, Basketball, Netball, Volleyball and more. Our leagues take place weekday afternoons, between 12 -5pm. The cost will be around $125 for a six week league. Keep an eye out for more information in early 2019!

  1. Hi There,
    Good to see so many free sport session become available to staff. Just wonder why the staff basketball session is still charged as per normal rate for the court? Any difference between basketball
    Cheers

    1. Hi Watson, the basketball sessions have been organised by an area of the university separate to the RecCentre team, which is why it’s charged as normal.
