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 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 2018 please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Thomson Geer 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 6pm during hotter months.
This year we are excited to introduce a Walking Club separate to the Running Club. If you can’t make the Running Club, or prefer to have a chat rather than a run, come and unwind after your classes with us! Meet us at the Office on Thursdays at 6pm for a leisurely walk around our beautiful campus.
Spice Up Your Sport
Spice up your Sport is an initiative created to bring more “niche” sports and activities to members which they may not usually get a chance to have a go at. Last year we hosted ballet, gymnastics and theatre sports, and in 2018 we hope to bring even more spicy sports to you! Take a break from the monotony of the law library and the comfort of your preferred sports and Spice up your Sport!
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 rugby; and
UQLS Law Cup – a big competition day between UQLS teams, other law societies and the profession in netball, touch football, and volleyball.
