International Sport Month

30 Days of Sport

International Sport Month is back, providing students from across the University with a chance to engage in all aspects of sport, health and wellbeing, as participants or spectators.

This year there's a slight twist, International Sport Month has rebranded to 30 Days of Sport! The initiative now takes into consideration 30 separate events throughout the whole year including taster sessions, varsities and tournaments. See the table below for this month's events.

‘Touch Duckes’ is an invitational 2-day touch rugby tournament coupled   with some fantastic après rugger at the premier student nightspot –   Timepiece. This event is all about fun in the sun and the focus is as much on   the spectators and the side-lines as it is on the rugby, with a combination   of free entry for spectators, drinks, food, competitions and live music from   Sam Baker-Doodles, these two days are absolutely unmissable.
