This year, Bangor Students’ Union has been excited to launch the new intramural sport programme, chwaraeon campws/campus sport with support from Canolfan Brailsford, the University sports centre. The programme is focused on getting regular non-active students, active and playing. It offers a recreational mixed netball ‘give it a go’, mixed futsal ‘turn up and play’ and a mixed 7-a-side Sunday football league, all free of charge. In 2015, the University will be offering a gym membership within their halls of residence packages. This will give every student the opportunity to get active if they are living on campus from 2015.
We have 38 teams competing in the BUCS programme and a range of non-BUCS clubs that compete in local or similar competitive leagues/events. Bangor Students Union offers free club membership for its students to take part in sport. The Union have also worked with the local community to establish the first parkrun in North Wales, giving students the opportunity to get involved in a free, weekly, timed 5k run. Sport and keeping active will help students with their physical, social and mental well-being at their time here at Bangor University.
