What's on at Get ACTIVE!
It’s been an impressive term for our Get Active programme, with regular and fresh faces joining the sessions. From the regular football and volleyball sessions, to surfing and hiking, there was something for everyone!
We saw an incredible 1,569 new registrations last term, and nearly 300 hours of Get Active activity delivered! Football, badminton, and volleyball took the lead with the most popular sessions of 2023, followed by a new session introduced this year; yoga, where we saw regular and new staff and students joining us every week, enjoying a peaceful break.
Numbers took off for our Bay Campus sessions compared to last year, with a successful 96 sessions being delivered and 1,427 students in attendance at these sessions. As the programme grows year on year, its amazing to see so many staff and students looking to stay fit in a fun and sociable environment.
With the introduction of yoga to the programme, as well as surfing and bouldering, we are providing a range of fun and relaxed activities to our university, encouraging a healthy lifestyle in the community.
2024 is already looking like an exciting year, as we introduce a rounders festival this term to the programme, as well as Ramadan football sessions, weekly Get Outdoors activities and an incredible 2-day Easter activity camp which will take place up the road in the beautiful Margam Park. With National Walking Month just around the corner, we can’t wait to bring you some breath-taking walks where you will have the opportunity to explore the beauty of the Gower right on our doorstep, so keep an eye out for these exciting opportunities.
