Staff Sports Fest – team registration closing soon

In place of the usual Staff Sports Day this year Sport and Recreation will be running a new Staff Sports Fest. Taking place on Friday 21 June, the Staff Sports Fest will consist of 2 indoor tournaments, Dodgeball and Volleyball. You’ll participate in both, with the overall winner of each tournament being crowned.

Registration for teams is closing soon and we only have a few spaces left for teams to fill. It would be great to see as many staff and departments enter from across the University.

When: Friday 21 June
Where: Spinnaker (Volleyball) / St Pauls (Dodgeball)
Time: 12.15pm – 3.15pm
Teams: Maximum of 16 teams (first come first served)
Participants: Minimum of 6 Maximum of 8 (mix of male and female)

The day is for all abilities and is focused more towards a fun afternoon with your work colleagues than competition. Join us at the Fleet from 4pm onwards where medals and prizes will be presented. For those not taking part in Staff Sports Fest why not come along to the day and support your University colleagues. Or join us in the Fleet and help our teams celebrate!

Please check with your line manager or head of department before entering a team. As long as the core function of your department is not disrupted, UEB have confirmed staff members may have the afternoon out of the office to participate in the Staff Sports Fest.

The deadline is Friday 7 June. Please complete team entry by this date. To sign up, go to
