Kirsty Bannatyne, Sports President, University of Strathclyde Sports Union
Hello! I’m Kirsty, Strathclyde Sports President for 2021/22.
Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Sports Union, we have an exciting year ahead of us as we transition back to campus and with the launch of the new Union building!
With 50+ sports clubs and over 3,000 members, the Sports Union has something for absolutely everyone. Whatever your ability may be and whatever stage of study you are at, our clubs will welcome you with open arms and you will become a #strathlete in no time. Student sport provides you with opportunities to develop skills, volunteer and become leaders whilst having fun, meeting new people and making the best memories.
I am in no way an athlete, but getting involved in student sport in any way is my biggest piece of advice for you – throw yourself into it, it will enhance your university experience in more ways than you can imagine.
As we transition back to campus, sport will play a pivotal role in the improvement of student well-being, and provide opportunities to connect with others across campus for which I know was dearly missed by students during the pandemic. Come along to our Sports Fair and Come & Try sessions and see what sport is for you!
