SPORT

Our portfolio is all about maintaining a healthy balance and having a go.

In the throes of study, work, and life generally, it can be tough to maintain a balance and look after yourself. To us, balance means allocating time to exercise to foster physical and mental health. Besides, you need a break from trying to understand what equity is, anyway. Through our various sporting initiatives and events, we want to help you find this balance during your time at law school. Participating in any one of our events or programs allows you to allocate time to your physical fitness, take a break from rigorous study, and socialise with other students. Most importantly, you don’t need to be sporty to enjoy yourself in UQLS Sport!

If you have any questions concerning UQLS Sport or our programs and events for 2019, please do not hesitate to contact us at sport@uqls.com.

 
 

UQ Social Sport

Our university runs social competitions through UQ Sport, which we enter a number of teams into each semester. Previous sports have included 7-a-side outdoor soccer, 5-a-side indoor soccer, touch football, netball, basketball and dodgeball. Social sport is one of the best ways to improve your fitness, take a break from study and make new friends. Keep your eyes on the UQLS Sport Facebook page at the start of each semester for info on sign ups. Sign-up below using your preferred payment option.

Allens Running Club

Running Club is an institution; we meet weekly on campus to exercise, release from daily activities and catch up with each other. We run different courses, incorporate other fitness activities and welcome all students of any fitness level. As done in previous years, we will gather and register teams for various Brisbane running events such as Bridge to Brisbane and Darkness to Daylight. Catch us on Tuesdays at the UQLS Office (1-W209), starting at 5:30 p.m. during hotter months.

 

Grudge Matches

There are plenty of opportunities to don the law school colours with pride and take on a variety of teams in all kinds of sports! Matches held in previous years have included:

  • The Suri Ratnapala Cup – a students v profession cricket match taking place early in the year;

  • UQLS v QUTLS – grudge matches in both soccer and touch; and

  • UQLS Law Cup – a big competition day between UQLS teams and other law societies in netball, tennis, and volleyball.
