Oxford Brookes Watersports
Oxford Brookes University
We are the university watersports team who bring together over fifty water-loving people every week. Living so far away from the sea in Oxford, we give our members the opportunity to continue with their favourite water sports activities that they usually do at home, whilst also introducing students to new activities that they have never tried before! This includes our two annual surf trips - this year to Fuertaeventura and Cornwall, along with our week Sailing around Greece in June. On a weekly basis we take students kayaking, wind surfing and Sailing, whilst holding social events every Wednesday.
The team is entirely run by students, with the financing and organisation managed by our committee members.
What makes our team special is that we welcome absolutely everyone. When I first joined university, I was overwhelmed by the competitive nature of the sportsteam selection process, and so it was important to me to invest my time into a sports team who welcomes absolutely anyone regardless of ability or experience.
