Support our sports

Dear all, 

The University have announced proposals to cut funding to the
Department of Physical Education and Sport by 15%. We believe these cuts are
disproportionate and too severe and at the very least there needs to be consultation
with Warwick Sport members. If the cuts faced by the Department are this
significant, it may well see Warwick Sport members having to pay an extra 60% (20)
for access to sport, potentially impacting Warwick Sport membership.

We have
therefore launched the Support Our Sports campaign. And we need everyone who agrees
with this campaign to get involved and support our sports at Warwick.

There are
days before decisions may be made so please act quickly on this!

Thank you for
your support

Epic Party Final Details

Posted 13y 5mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Barnet

Hey Guys,

Thought I would just remind you that the epic party is still happening tomorrow (Thursday 24th June) at Leamington Rugby Club. The postcode is CV32 6RG if you are driving, if you are catching the bus take a look at the location and there is a bus stop close by for the U1. (Ask the bus driver).

We will have a marquee, a bouncy castle, a BBQ dinner, music and also plenty of alcohol and soft drinks. There isn't flooring in the marquee so it will be grass underfoot, just to let you know if you plan on wearing fancy shoes.

If you are one of the few who I haven't spoken to and haven't paid, please bring the money on the night. No money = no entry, its not fair on everyone else who has paid.

Plan to arrive for 7:30pm to start and then I have no idea what time it will finish. I'll get some taxi numbers and have them to hand at the end of the evening so people can get back. The event is black tie so dress up smartly. :)

See you all tomorrow!

For those of you that don't know the university are planning on drastically decreasing funding for sports. This is likely to be passed on to us in the form of a £20 rise in Warwick Sport fees next year.

Change of plan for Nene

Hi guys,

Thanks to the mighty organisational skills of the Nene, everything has been moved to week 10, Wednesday 24th June. It will be the same time, so I imagine that we will be leaving about 12ish and returning around 7.

Please signup, the trip is likely to be very cheap as the University is paying for the course hire. It's a gerat laugh and will be the last opportunity for many of you to play on whitewater before next year, so get involved. If you can no longer make this date, can you please remove your signup.

Muchos gracias

Nene trip Week 9

Howdy boys and girls,

The holidays are drawing close, and end of term looms. What's that I hear you cry? You want some more whitewater excitement before you finish the year? Fear not. We are organising a trip to the Nene artificial whitewater centre in Northampton on Wednesday 17th June (that's week 9 to those stuck on bubble time).

The Nene course is great for all abilities, whether you're waiting to do your first whitewater roll, or want to perfect surfing waves or give cartwheeling a try. We will have a number of coaches there help you improve on whatever you want. Or, if you just want to muck about on the course, you can do that as well. The world is your oyster.

As usual, sign up through the trips link on the website. Price is going to be below a tenner, as the University is paying for the course hire. How nice of them. We'll be leaving around 12ish to return for around 7, but times will be confirmed nearer the date.

Hi guys, just a quick note to ask all of you wanting a surf-trip t-shirt to get organised with the £4. No money means no t-shirt!
I'll be at the pool session this afternoon, and i'll turn up at the end of polo tomorrow. If you're not coming to either of these sessions, i tend to live in the maths block at the moment, or just give me a ring/text (0seven517fourfour239three) to organise sometime to meet up.

Thanks to everyone thats already paid up

Canoe Sessions

Posted 13y 6mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: P Gizzle
We've had a few complaints from Canoe Club members regarding use of polo kit in canoe sessions.

It has been agreed that if you want to practice any skills in a Polo boat you MUST use a plastic. If you want to use a ball to practice handrolling with - that is fine. Balls must not be thrown around the pool except with the permission of myself or a canoe exec member. This will only occur when te session isn't very busy.

Remember that these are canoe session and polo occurs tuesdays and fridays when we get more pool time anyway.

Lots of wet love
