Why YOU should join a sports team at Christ Church

Are you looking to join a sports team whilst at uni? Team Christ Church has loads of sports for you to try out.

Whether you already play a sport or looking to start playing there is something for you at this university.

Here is the full list of all the sports teams at Christ Church:

President of Sport and Engagement Chloe Woolaway said that joining a sports team is one of the best decisions she’s ever made.

She said: “From experience, I think all the incoming freshers need to know that if you miss the first session of a sport or society, or you tried a sport and you didn’t like it, then that’s okay! You can still sign-up to another sport or society, or still attend a session later on.

“The same goes for students currently at Christ Church, it’s never too late to get involved in team Christ Church!

“I myself didn’t join the cricket team until the end of my second year and it was the best decision I’ve made.”

If you join a sports team you don’t just play the sport but every Wednesday there are socials (this is common for most sports). Socials normally have different themes each week varying from Where’s Wally to 118 socials.

Ali Barker, President of Men’s Cricket said that you ‘make unbelievable friends’ through joining a sports team.

He said: “I first wanted to join a sports club because I wanted to play all year round. It turned out that being a member of a club was so much more – through both playing and socials, you make some unbelievable friends and you join a family in Team Christ Church.

“Joining cricket was possibly one of the best decisions I could have made.”

This is just one example of what socials can look like.

Competing in some of the top leagues, the teams here at Christ Church really do the university proud. Men’s football 1s, Netball 1s and Women’s rugby all won their respective leagues.

Men’s cricket reached the nationals and finished 5th best in the country, and so much money from each sports team has been raised for charities.

If you are looking to join a sports team, contact Chloe Woolaway on Facebook or sports@ccsu.co.uk or come to freshers fayre on Wednesday 19th September in Augustines House and the Student Union.
