Hands up if you hate running or ‘doing cardio’?
Hands up if you love throwing a ball or racquet around?
Hands up if you know you should be moving a little more?
Here’s an idea…why not get together for a social game of sport? Here’s a few ways you can play sport at uni, without having to commit to training and game days.
1. Just play!
If the courts aren’t in use (for group fitness, social sport or a lecture), you can just borrow some equipment from our reception and get going. It’s free before 3pm, and the equipment hire is always free. Try basketball, badminton or squash for starters, and if you can find enough friends, volleyball or futsal could be a goer too.
If you’ve got enough for a team, and can play for 30mins once a week, for five weeks, maybe the social sport leagues will suit you best. We offer Futsal, Basketball, Netball and Volleyball, and a student team can enter for the grand total of $130 (that’s for the whole term, a one-off fee).
If you don’t have a team, you can register as an individual with us, and we’ll try and find you a team, or if there is enough of you, make a new team with all the singletons.
These have taken a little hit in attendance of late, but we’d love to see more people back with us! Every day (except Wednesday) between 12pm and 1pm, we have blocked out the sportshall for sport, so you can rock up and play with others. Monday is Futsal, and every other day is Volleyball. Free for members and UC students, and your friends who aren’t members can pay $2 to come with for the hour.
