Fresher starting Newcastle Uni this September, 2009!

Post  lindsaysbitch on Sun Aug 23, 2009 4:54 pm

Hello everyone, I'm a fresher about to start at Newcastle Uni, and was wondering if I require the annual sports membership you get with your accommodation contract to join the canoe club?

And also, how will I be able to join when I get there?

Thanks for reading,
Alex!

Hi Alex,

Firstly congratulations on choosing an excellent university and welcome!

Whilst I am likely to be proven wrong by any current members (I am an oldie that still tags along at times!) I think you do need the annual sports membership to take part in the club pool sessions (which I think are still on a Thursday night). You only need the most basic level of membership unless you actually want to use the gym and sports center for other things eg going to the gym!

To join the club - I expect there will be a stall at the clubs and societies freshers fair (not sure where this will be held - it used to be in the Union and sports centre but things change year on year!). If you cant make that or dont find them keep posting on here and someone should sort you out with the details!

You done much paddling before then? If so where and what?

Cheers

Pete

Thank you very much for your help peter, you really cleared things up!

I opted out of the sports membership; but I should be able to apply for it again, surely?

And I have... A star in kayaking I think! I haven't done much but when I did do it I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and can't wait to try it again! I like to do a bit of swimming too - anything in water really!

hello,
We will defiantly be at freshers fair, this you can be put on our mailing list whilst here, I believe it will be in the sports centre again but im sure you will be told when you arrive in Newcastle. If you don't find us on freshers fair just post again asking to be put on the message board. To join the club this can be done later on, we will be sending an email round once the mailing list is updated. the gym member ship can be applied for at any time through the website, you will only require the "Recreation only £55.00 (University smart card is required for identification)".

Glad to hear that you enjoy kayaking and are looking at joining the best club in the university!

Patrick
