Want to keep healthy? Fight back that ‘fresher-flab’? Meet new people? Or just have fun? Then recreational sport is for you.
At University of Bath we have a comprehensive recreational offer, which includes casual recreational sessions and competitive Intra-Mural activity.
Check out the last year's timetable below (we will be updating it for 2017-18 soon) (click on the days and then the events for more information) and try out some of what we have to offer!
On the time table you will see that we have various Inter-Halls and an Inter-Department offer to take advantage of. These are slightly different to a ‘turn up and play’ recreational offer such as badminton; instead these are competitive leagues ran internally by the clubs and some even have training sessions.
There is a common misconception that you have to be a first-year to play inter-halls, however this isn’t true, instead you just play for the halls which you lived in during first year – So if you’re a final-year and lived in Eastwood during your first-year, you’ll play for the Eastwood.
Didn’t attend the University for your first-year? Get in contact with the coordinator of that session and they will put you in a team. Inter-Department offers are much the same, just instead of playing for your hall, you play for you department instead. These halls and department teams then compete against one another on a weekly basis to eventually be crowned champions.
Do I need to pay to participate in these sessions?
As is advertised on the recreational timetable, the only sessions which do not require club membership are the 6-a-side and futsal leagues. This doesn't mean that you have to pay to try out a session though, you can purchase the relevant club membership after attending two sessions should you wish to try it out.
