With deadlines looming, and exams slowly but surely creeping their way in, it’s very easy to forget what the summer season is actually about. However! Help is at hand with the very first ‘Social Sports Month’, which will be kicking off this May with a variety of different events, not least of all ‘Society Sport’s Day’ which will see societies across campus going head to head in a series of events on the 16th of this month.
From anime to water-sports all societies are invited to take part in what promises to be a very fun and informal day of games and excitement with the events themselves (which are currently set to include a sack race, egg and spoon race as well as many more!) looking set to put those of the Olympics to shame.
All societies are eligible to submit names, with the overall aim being to make the event as diverse and exciting as possible. So if you think your society has got what it takes be sure to keep an eye out for the event on Facebook, which will provide you with all the information you need with regards to signing up and getting started. Keen to take part but not a member of any society? Not a problem! Just follow the instructions above and get your friends to join in too or arrangements will be made for you to become part of another team on the day - who knows? You might even find yourself signing up for a society you never even considered/knew existed before!
Whether you choose to participate or just come along to cheer on your favourite society, ‘Society Sports Day’ looks set to be an exciting fun-filled event, as well as great excuse to get out of the library and into the sunshine…go on! You know you want to!
