Freshers - Sport Come & Try

The University of Strathclyde Sports Union is invading Freshers' Week 2019 to provide 30+ FREE Come & Try sport taster sessions for all University of Strathclyde students

Regardless of whether you just enjoyed PE at school or are a complete beginner, this is the perfect opportunity to get involved in sport and meet new people at Strathclyde!

Heading off to University for the first time can be a daunting experience, however we believe taking part in a student sports clubs can be the number one way to settle into your new life. The Come & Try initiative is your first opportunity to taste what life in a sports club can be like and we are inviting you to take the first step by getting involved one ore more of the 30 FREE taster sport sessions during Freshers Week. 

Most activities will take part in the University's £31m Strathclyde Sport facility or Stepps Playing Fields for indoor and outdoors sports. Free transport will be provided from campus to any activities off-campus.

Keep an eye out for the full timetable on the web link below and make sure to sign up for a session at Sports Fair. Don't worry if you miss the Fair, just rock up at any of the sessions and enjoy what sport we have to offer. Why not even take a mate along too?
