Get good enough for the beach next summer, and learn how to dig, hit, spike and volley!
Starts Feb 2012
Never heard of it? No problem. It has been described as a sport combining all the best elements of basketball, water polo and football with a little bit of rugby thrown in. Want a new challenge, or just a good story? Be different; try handball!
Remember a bit from school and reckon you could get back into it? No previous experience necessary – get back on that court; we’ll remind you of the rules (footwork, ladies!) and help you find your favourite position (ooh-er!).
Canoeing & Kayaking:
I’m On A Boat! Get out on the water, learn to paddle (in a straight line!), check out canoe polo for beginners and have your first river experience. First sessions in the swimming pool, teaching you the basics. Safety equipment provided.
Dodge, dip, dive, duck and dodge! Make like Average Joe’s and get into dodgeball. Everyone loves dodgeball!
Try a brand new sport! It’s a cross between netball and basketball, it’s a mixed sport where guys mark guys and girls mark girls, so come and have a laugh and a go – you never know, some of you might become Newcastle Uni’s first ever team!
ROUNDER! ROUNDER! How good was rounders at school? Recreate the best bit of PE all year with us in the park this year, with a sprinkling of coaching to improve your chances of hitting a rounder (impressive, right?).
Want to do The Great North Run while you’re here in Newcastle? Get some training in with some like-minded (not pro level!) joggers, and keep each others’ spirits up whilst out pounding the pavement. No previous level of running required! Run leaders required too.
Looks fun, but only for big, tall Americans? Not now! We’re opening the game up to beginners; both guys and girls! Just have a go!
Don’t fancy cauliflower ears and grabbing sweaty men’s waists? Did you know that there are thousands of men and women playing Touch up and down the country, and there’s even a World Cup! Social, easy to learn and no tackling! Give it a go?
Always wanted to have a go at cheerleading, but want to be eased into it? Tried street dance, and want a new twist? Have a go at this take on both, and we’ll have you cheering street-style before you know it!
Hard to get into without your own clubs and a membership to some exclusive club? Not anymore! You can try it for no more than the price of a drink or two, and you definitely don’t need special shoes, polo shirts or your own gear to have a go! Have a swing with a real golf pro showing the strokes. Lovely way to ruin a good walk, apparently!
