Throughout November, the Faculty of Science Social Committee and the Spinnaker Sports Centre ran five taster sessions for staff and students within the Faculty of Science. All five events were a huge success, and started with 20 staff and students participating in a Racketathon, a mixture of Tennis, Badminton and Table Tennis. The 8th November saw 13 participants split into teams and take each other on in a fast paced Handball and Futsal taster session. The following week was slightly more relaxed, with staff and students enjoying Pilates and Yoga inspired activities. On the 22nd November, staff and students again split into teams to try out Walking Netball and Walking Football, both of which were thoroughly enjoyed by all who participated.
The final session saw staff and students go head to head for a session of UV Badminton which proved very successful and well received as every court, taped with colourful UV was taken. Light up shuttlecocks and glow sticks added to the appeal which made this event stand out from any other sport event. Images of the event can be seen below.
More events, including non-sport events, will be taking place shortly so keep an eye out for updates.
