Plugging my society—– Pick & Mix Sports
Hi all!!! This is where I unashamedly promote one of the societies that I happen to be in,as well as it's Treasurer and also it is one of the newest. As you can probably tell from it's name P&M is a society where we basically sample a different sport each week and have some fun before it becomes boring doing the same thing two or three times a week. It also gives you a chance to try out activities that you would not have normally done before. Some of the more interesting unpredicted ones that come to mind, amongst others, are lacross, trampolining, taekwondo and thai boxing. Of course, the usual suspects, such as football, cricket and basketball are done as well.
The lessons are normally taken by the exec of the relevant sport society concerned, so those leading the fun 2 hour session actually do know what they are talking about and are able to engender some enthusiasm from those who are normally reluctant to take part. As it is a more informal society than some, it doesn't matter if you'd never done the sport before as most of us aren't that competitive. Well, perhaps not all of us anyway. You can also miss the odd session if there is something that you don't fancy doing, without running the risk of getting the 'cold shoulder' treatment that you may get in other societies. Also, through doing and being a member of the society, you will of course be able to try out a sport/ activity and if you like it, use this knowledge to join that society as well.
