5 Reasons why you should get involved with Engage Inclusive Sports Day 2018

  1. Try new sports and meet the University clubs

The Engage inclusive sports day will provide you with the opportunity to try a number of the eight sports and activities that we will be running as part of the day. The sports that you will be able to try on the day include:

  • Trampoline
  • Climbing
  • Wheelchair Basketball
  • Handball
  • Aikido
  • Goalball
  • Couch to 5km running
  • Fitness classes (TBC)

The sessions will be tailored to suit your needs and ensure that as many people as possible can take part. You can rest assured that a friendly face will be on hand to greet you.


  1. Meet new people

You will have met people from course and your halls, this event is a great opportunity to meet people that you can get active with.

The clubs will also be leading the sessions, so it will be a good opportunity for you to meet them and find out more about their sport and their club.

If you try a sport or meet people that you click with, there will be an opportunity to continue participating through our Engage programme.


  1. Getting some balance in to your University life

The first few weeks of term can be quite stressful and busy. Sport and physical activity can be a great outlet for you to unwind and get some balance back in to your life.

We have picked a mix of sports and activities – some to get your heart racing and some which require more skill and concentration.

Hopefully this will set you off on the right path and provide the opportunities to maintain a good work vs life balance while you’re at the University.


  1. Try before you buy

The day is a free event and will allow you to access David Ross Sports Village and all of the sports. This is the perfect opportunity for you to experience all of the different sports and activities that we have to offer and see what you enjoy.


After the event you will be able to continue playing different sports through the Engage programme, which you don’t need a sports membership for – it will be just £3 per session (off campus activities may have a higher charge). Alternatively you can buy one of our great value Sports Memberships which will provide you with access to all of the facilities and the fitness class programme.


  1. Experience sport at the iconic David Ross Sports Village

David Ross Sports Village has been open for two years and is one of the most impressive buildings on campus. It offers everything from indoor cycling, to badminton, swimming, climbing and snooker – there really is something for everyone.
