This academic year, 2018/19, represents 100 years of University Sport (currently BUCS) and the University of Sheffield was one of the original ten founding members from across the UK.
To help mark this centenary, Sport Sheffield is celebrating 100 events to recognise this, involving alumni, staff, students and the wider community as well.
Throughout the year we will be highlighting our heritage within sport and launching new activities (or promoting existing ones such as Women in Sport, Disability in Sport, International Students in Sport) to increase engagement in sport both at the University and in the wider Sheffield community.
We will be celebrating our centenary with a variety of events including:
- Disability in Sport Week (26th November-30th November)
- Collecting favourite sporting memories
- Our very own Question of Sport event
Plus, many of these events will be helping to raise funds to support Participation Grants at the University of Sheffield - these grants help students get involved in sports while studying, which can be hugely beneficial for physical and mental health.
Keep your eyes peeled for updates and news over the coming year! #100YearsOfSport
