Nathan Phillips: Athletics & X Country

I was apprehensive about joining the atheltics club but I have made some of my best friends during my time in the club. Sport Swansea has given me access to some amazing opportunities to grow both as an athlete and as a person. It's not just about being part of a club though, you are joining a sporting community which makes life at university way more exciting, especially at Varsity.

I also had the opportunity to volunteer as a Sport Swansea Executive which has allowed me to meet some awesome sports people and helped me develop skills for life. Sport in Swansea is really inclusive. I’ve met so many different types of people during my involvement in sport here and I mean it when I say that there is a sport for everyone.

Emily Williams: Surf & Triathlon

Before coming to Swansea I hadn't surfed the local beaches too much, however once I joined the surf club I met loads of people and that really helped me get around and taught me loads about surfing in Swansea.

My Sport Swansea team mates really made me feel at home, especially in my first year being in a completely new city!

I've also joined the Hockey and Triathlon Clubs during my time at Swansea and the members have been so welcoming and supportive. Starting a new sport was a little bit daunting but I needn't have worried. I really have made friends for life by joining these clubs!

Rhian Evans : Netball

Prior to starting university, I played netball to quite a high standard so was really looking forward to continuing my netball journey at Swansea University.

I have loved every second of the experience and gained some amazing opportunities through joining the netball club. Whether it be training, playing or socials, I always have the best time with the team. All of the girls and coaches are lovely and so welcoming, you really couldn’t ask for a better environment to play the sport you love!

Tanatswa Dzumbunu: Basketball

Becoming a part of Swansea University Basketball Club is easily one of the best decisions I made during my student life. Prior to starting university, I had never played basketball before. However the club was so inclusive, welcomed me straight away and I did not have to worry about how to make friends.

Playing basketball has significantly helped improve my fitness levels and enhanced my social life at university. There’s nothing that compares to being part of a club and I would encourage everyone to sign up for a sports club during their time at university.
