Other Sport Activities
Male and Female Futsal Team
Similar to 5-a-side football, but played on a smaller playing surface, with a smaller ball and mainly played indoors. The rules create an emphasis on improvisation, creativity and technique. Coached sessions run throughout the year, with fixtures taking place and an annual British Colleges tournament being taken part in.
The college’s new sports hall is the ideal location to play volleyball. Whether you’re new to the sport or if you have played before we will coach and shape a team so you are competent enough to play in the British Colleges annual tournament.
Table tennis training is held regularly. Students taking part vary greatly in their ability. Some attend to learn how to keep a rally going whilst others who are more eager, generate our table tennis squad to take part in matches throughout the year. Due to our diverse backgrounds of students we often have some great talent passing through. So if you want to perfect your loop drive, or just want to be able to hit the ball then come along!
West Midlands Golf Competition
Pit yourself against other quality college golfers in this annual competition. Several students play in this tournament every year. It is open to both male and female students. As we look ahead to our move to the new campus at Longbridge we shall enjoy the handy location near North Worcestershire Golf Club.
Dust off your training shoes and join the fun in the sun. In the spring term we offer rounders sessions. For those who desire a more competitive edge we also take part in a rounder’s festival where you can pit your skills against other colleges.
West Midlands Athletics Competition
Runners, jumpers and throwers needed! Look out for athletics training in the summer term. Whether you have an interest in one event, or several, we can cater to your needs, and enter you in the West Midlands athletics competition.
Working in conjunction with Five Ways Old Edwardians we will be running coaching sessions in 2011-12 using RFU qualified coaches. Students will have the opportunity to go along to FWOE to find out more about playing regularly, and have the opportunity to trial for the West Midlands Colleges team.
