ARU Sport Highlights 2017/18


I love playing for ARU I’ve been playing
for three years now so it’s my first year at uni and I was really lucky to find
table tennis and they were looking for another member to make a team it’s good
to be part of a team cause you learn how to work with others it just gets you
involved it’s more this community it’s great fun we have a great team being
involved in sport at Anglia Ruskin has meant everything to me. Joining the team made
me feel much more a part of the university life. Whenever possible we show up to our
matches, we cheer each other on. Our last home match we had 20 people down
here come watch and everyone just had a really good time
creates an atmosphere. The university’s helping us a lot as well we have new kits, new venue that’s a lot of motivation that is really good for us. It
feels great run around in the uni’s colours The whole social side of meeting new new
friends new girls stuff like that is amazing so I’m very proud to represent ARU like that. We’re like a family here at the badminton team. You know you
just have that extra support from uni work just like anything really. It’s
really good for someone like me who’s a foreigner and his first time in this
country like. Because I didn’t know anyone when I came here This has been really great we’ve had a
load more experienced people join the team’s. New coaches come in and really
changed up how we play so we’ve been improving. We’ve had a great turnout we’ve
kept building and now we’re competing a quite high level. This year’s been
particularly good because we’ve had more of a committee set up so I’ve been
organizing more socials. In February we brought students up to BUCS Nationals
in Sheffield to represent Anglia Ruskin University in swimming, athletics, fencing
and judo. I really enjoy you get the kit and staff and you travel together as a
university you feel very professional. Jess Fox took to the track and achieved
the season’s best in the 60 metres and a personal best in the triple jump. Our
judo team continued their success at BUCS Nationals winning seven medals and
a highlight is Matea defending his title To win four golds in a row it feels
great and it was my pleasure definitely it was my pleasure The hockey team have done really well
this year we’ve won the league it’s been amazing feeling especially for
most of us as it’s our last year. Women’s table tennis team and we won the league
today we’re really proud of ourselves and our team. We’ve gone undefeated in
the league and we’ve also won the Cup so we’ve done the double this year it feels
amazing especially my last year to finally win both. For the BUCS league we ended
up second and we went through the final for national league we didn’t expect
any of this. Yeah it’s great to represent the University. It’s a good feeling
representing these colours. We wear our sort of logos with pride. It’s nice to
represent at away games and just feeling quite confident that we represent a good
uni. I’ve absolutely loved playing sports Anglia Ruskin every time I step
on the court I feel that the whole University is behind me we had amazing
support from the staff here as well and it’s been an absolute pleasure I’ve
loved every single minute of it
