Harry Turner selected for British University Kayak Expedition

Harry Turner (Paddlesport and Canoe club) has been selected for the British University Kayak Expedition.

IMG_2977

“I am in my 3rd year of university studying Outdoor Adventure Leadership and Management at the University of Worcester. I have been kayaking since the age of 12, along with most other Outdoor Adventure Sports. I started kayaking by being pushed in to Slalom but decided chasing sticks wasn’t for me but white water was. At the age of 16 I had my first taste of real white water paddling the Upper Dart at decent flows with my local canoe club (Bridgnorth). Since then I have paddled in the French and Austrian Alps, parts of Upper Bavaria and Switzerland and the Julien Alps in Slovenia, and across the UK.”

What is BUKE?

“BUKE (British University Kayak Expedition) is a White Water Kayaking Expedition that happens every other year. It started back in 2005 with Tim Burne organising a trip to Kyrgyzstan with a handful of other boaters from different universities across Britain. Since 2005 the different teams have been to: Venezuela, Ethiopia, Madagascar and The Philippines just to name a few.

“So myself and many others from different uni’s across the UK all had to write an application form and from that application, 20 people were selected to take part in a selection weekend in North Wales (30th-2nd Dec) where we would be paddling the best and hardest rivers in North Wales and trying to decide who would make a good team member. On Saturday night we all voted for who we wanted on the team and I was lucky enough to make it on. Along with 6 others, hailing from Belfast, Bangor, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow Universities. We now have the challenge of organising an expedition to try and kayak on some uncharted waters in some remote country, our three main thoughts are Eastern Russia, Papua New Guinea and Myanmar, all of these places hold some amazing white water but all have issues that go along with them. We will be gathering sponsorship from major kayak brands to help with gear but we also need to raise money for travel, permits and in case things go wrong! I am the first student from the University of Worcester to ever make it on one of these expeditions and hopefully I can inspire more students to give kayaking a go! Thanks for reading, Harry Turner.”

Severn Stars Friendly

Severn Stars are hosting a pre-season friendly ahead of the start of the Vitality Netball Superleague in January 2019. Stars will be facing Strathclyde Sirens in a one-off friendly at the Sports Centre, St. Johns Campus on Saturday 8th December, with first centre pass at 7pm. This is a chance to come and see how the new side is shaping up before the league starts on 5th January with the Super 10 showdown, featuring all 10 teams playing at the Birmingham Arena over the course of one day.

The Stars have strengthened their squad over the summer and now feature a host of England A internationals, as well as University of Worcester student, Iona Darroch. Whilst fellow student, Jodie Gibson,  part of the gold medal winning England team at the Commonwealth Games earlier this year should also be fit to take part. 6’5 Wales international goal shooter Georgia Rowe is another new signing who will be taking to the court for the first time in a blue dress alongside fellow Welsh international, Cara-lea Moseley.

Meanwhile Sirens have been busy on the recruitment front themselves making a big name signing in former New Zealand Silver Fern, Cat Tuitavati, who will certainly strengthen their shooting options alongside their largely Scottish international squad.

Doors open at 6:30pm and tickets are only £5 to come and watch top class domestic netball. Tickets for the friendly are available here https://severnstars.ticketline.co.uk/order/tickets/13341294/severn-stars-friendly-university-of-worcester-sports-centre-2018-12-08-19-00-00

 

Severn Stars is the professional netball franchise jointly owned by the University of Worcester and University of Gloucestershire.

 

Rowing Club Report of Achievements

This is a short report to update all of you on the recent achievements of the club. The committee and the coaches are very proud of how well we have been performing so far this year. In the academic year 2017-2018 as a club we had 6 wins throughout the whole year. This year so far, we have been able to get 5 wins from our senior squad with some very impressive times.

To start the year, 4 of our senior women competed in Worcester Rowing Club Autumn Regatta. In September only a few of our members had returned to Worcester and decided that they would compete as a scratch crew in the regatta. The women’s 4x had a great race and started our season off with the first win.

Our second race of the year was in Worcester again where we entered a women’s 4x and a women’s 2x. With the double performing really well but unfortunately losing out on first place we were still very proud of them as this was their first time as a crew. We also had two men’s 1x enter the head but they also unfortunately missed out on a win. Our women’s 4x did however secure a win with a very successful race.

Our most recent event and our most successful was Gloucester Head. We had many crews entered into this race from our senior squad. The crews were:

  • Women’s 8+
  • Women’s 4x
  • Women’s 4+
  • Women’s 1x
  • Men’s 2x
  • Men’s 2x
  • Men’s 2x
  • Men’s 1x

We were lucky enough to secure three great wins at this event. We had some very successful times and wins from the women’s 8+, women’s 1+ and our sports scholars 2x. The coaches and committee were very proud of our achievements on that day.

We also organised a club trip to London to use the indoor rowing tank. Here we were able to help the beginners to improve their technique and fitness as well as get some whole club bonding in, the sleepover/pizza/movie night was a great hit!

We owe this success to the dedication and commitment from the current squad members, who have been attending early morning training sessions and following a six day a week training plan. We are continually seeing improvements from all members and the support from each other and the coaches has been crucial to our recent success.

As a club we look forward to our next race, Bristol Head, were we hope to secure some more wins with our senior and development squad.

After losing three family members (Joel, Pat and Ade) in June 2015 during the Tunisian terror attacks, Suzi and Owen Richards wanted to make a difference in their name for others who have experienced losing someone they love in such a heart-breaking way.

SmileForJoel was set up as a fund raising charity to support and help shattered/ broken families who are victims of traumatic bereavement through homicide. They give direct to families the support that they desperately need. This support is very diverse, from time out for family breaks, special counselling, help with purchases of gifts or that special gift to a family to show them someone does care.

Free exercise sessions and research opportunity

Final few participants required! Do you want to get more active? Do you want to be part of some novel research taking place at the University of Worcester? This novel research study explores a new approach to how and where we exercise. High-intensity interval exercise is recently becoming a more popular mode of training based on its time-efficiency compared with traditional, continuous and moderate-intensity exercise. However, the time-efficiency becomes questionable if a time-consuming visit to the gym is required in order to undertake this training. We are investigating whether high intensity workouts in the living room can be just as effective as a trip down the gym, by exploring many different effects of a bout of non-gym-based bouts of high-intensity interval exercise, such as star jumps, on the body.

For your time and efforts, you will receive a free month’s gym membership at the University McClelland Centre for Health & Wellbeing and the St John’s campus gym, as well as be entered into a prize draw to win a prize up to the value of £150.

If you are female, aged 18-50, currently doing less than 150 minutes of exercise per week and with a BMI of 25-35, we would love to have you involved. Participating in this study will require 3 visits to the laboratory from around 8am-2:30pm, but during most of this time you are free to work from the laboratory. If you are able to work away from your office for this amount of time and are interesting in participating, please see the attached poster and email Alice Burgin at a.burgin@worc.ac.uk. Thank you!

First Worcester Pitchcroft parkrun a Fantastic Success

Thanks to Sport Development & Coaching Student, Sam Payne

The first Worcester Pitchcroft Parkrun took place on Saturday 10 June 2017 around Worcester racecourse, and was fantastically successful involving 335 runners and 30 volunteers. The new weekly 5k event has been initiated and developed by one of our current 3rd year Sport Development and Coaching students, Sam Payne, who did a brilliant job in the organisation and delivery both before and on the day itself. His pre-run briefing was considered highly professional, thanking all the partner organisations (Worcester City Council, Sport Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire, University of Worcester, Black Pear Joggers, Worcester parkrun etc.), and encouraging everyone to continue to support this ongoing family friendly opportunity. In fact his first message out to partners headlining the initial statistics identified the need to “start encouraging specific demographic groups, who may be in need, to join the service we provide each week”.

The event was well supported by University staff both as runners, spectators and volunteer marshals, so please consider getting involved in some way. Sam would like to encourage as many people to attend so please do promote this to all and come along on any Saturday – 8.45am meet at the pavilion to the East of the racecourse (see location on map):

If you are currently registered with parkrun then remember to bring your barcode details on the day, but if not and you would like to register to get an official time, then please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/ (‘Worcester Pitchcroft parkrun’ would be the home event).

Note:

The event website can be found at http://www.parkrun.org.uk/worcesterpitchcroft/

This is the second parkrun to be established in Worcester. The existing parkrun at the Countryside Centre achieved 489 runners on Saturday so combining the two events, ensured 824 Saturday morning runners within the city. The average finishing time was 27 mins and the course record (not that it’s about that) stands at 16:58 for males, and 20:08 for females.

Sam first developed the idea through his second year Sponsorship & Fundraising module, and has since focused on the initiative for his Sport Development Project (IS equivalent), raising the required funding, linking local partner organisations and undertaking the time consuming and gruelling processes of application, planning and risk management procedures. Well done Sam on a brilliant project, well delivered and for being “a real credit to the University” (anonymous runner!).

Pitchcroft Parkrun Starts Saturday

A new Worcester Pitchcroft Parkrun has been initiated and developed by one of our current Sport Business Management students, Sam Payne. The run launches on Saturday 10 June 2017 at 9am, with a 8.45am meet at the grandstand

Sam first developed the idea through his second year Sponsorship & Fundraising module, and has since focused on the initiative for his Sport Development Project (IS equivalent), raising the required funding, linking local partner organisations and undertaking the time consuming and gruelling processes of application, planning and risk management procedures.

Please do attend and offer your support for this 5k event and for Sam.

If you are currently registered with parkrun then remember to bring your barcode details on the day, but if not and you would like to register to get an official time, then please visit http://www.parkrun.org.uk/register/
