Summer Activities – £1 per Play!

We’ve got a great offer for staff and post-graduate students this summer – with a range of activities at £1 per play!

Weekly social drop-in sessions in 5-a-side football, basketball, badminton and netball – for all levels of ability!
Dedicated staff members across the university will help to lead and deliver the sessions.
Sessions are for all members of staff and post-graduate students.

Take an active lunch break, or enjoy a post-work activity with one of our staff-led sessions! Designed for social play, these sessions allow you to have a laugh and meet people with the same interests – and at only £1 per play, these sessions are great value for money!

Active from 26th June – 8th September, we have four sports on offer over the summer months. These drop-in sessions require no commitment or level of ability – just come play!
