Tom Sawko

Hey Everyone, I’m Tom, your Sport Officer! I graduated in 2019 from a Masters in Physics with Astrophysics, and am lucky enough to be in this role, representing and working alongside you to improve the quality and accessibility of physical activity and sport here at Bath.

Throughout my four years, between the Cosmology and the Quantum physics, I’ve relished the opportunity to be part of a sporting community, and shape it. I’ve captained the Men’s 1st team, coached indoor, beach and sitting volleyball and have chaired the club.

I sit on the BUCS Student advisory group, looking at the return to competitive sport for British universities. I also write for Wonkhe, specifically around sport in Higher education.

I’m passionate about getting people moving, however they want to. I’m a firm believer that we can, and should be doing more to urgently address the climate crisis. I believe that mental health signposting training should be more widely accessible within our communities. I believe we can unlock so much with and for physical activity by linking up passionate people throughout the Bath community!

In my spare time, I play beach volleyball on the UK Beach Tour. I enjoy playing guitar, reading, cocktail bartending, photography, cooking, walking, yoga, basically any form of physical activity… I drink excessive volumes of coffee. I’m not good at smiling on command. I’m almost always happy to chat, or schedule something in, so if you’d like to get involved in any way, shape or form, just shout!
