Next up in our series of articles we have the Most Improved Society of the Year and Most improved Club of the Year. The criteria for this award is continued development, spirit, and organisation of a club and society. Importantly it also includes a dedication to carry this progression for future years.

Our winning Society this year is AberDogs. They started just over 3 years ago, going onto win Best New Society 2018-19. Outstandingly, over the past academic year they have managed to not only double their membership base, they have even gone onto become the biggest society on campus.

This year, Swimming and Waterpolo have significantly developed their membership base and regularly demonstrated their dedication to training with 6:30am starts; their Women’s Team had a great year, making the semi-final of the BUCS Western Conference Cup.

Hope everyone had a fab Easter🐣👌🏼

Not sure if you’ve seen the event that was posted yesterday but tonight a guy from the charity Oddballs is coming to talk to us about the work they do and to raise awareness about testicular cancer - a v important topic which we should all be more aware of!

The talk starts at 7pm (the link is on the event) and afterwards we’ll have one of our usual-style socials! This will be one of the last opportunities to see everyone all together on zoom before exam season hits👎🏼 so it would be great to see loads of you there!!

Hey everyone,

We’ve made the decision to stop the weekly online socials (as there’s only so many quizzes you can do!) in the hope that very soon we’ll be able to get back to some form of in-person social!

Hope you’re all enjoying training again😊

Xoxo

‼️ Training Update ‼️
Unfortunately training will now be starting on the week commencing the 5th of October. This is due to the sports centre not having the necessary covid precautions in place for training. If there are any further developments we will let you know.
As always, any questions just drop us a message.

23/09/2020

Tonight we have our freshers social on South beach starting at 6:30pm!!

For those of you living up the hill, there’ll be 2 committee members waiting by the SU steps to meet you at 6pm and if you live in town, there’ll be another 2 of us waiting by the bandstand at 6:15pm! We’ll be holding AUSWP signs (as seen below)!

Remember to bring some drinks (if you’d like) or food and something to sit on!!🍺

It’ll be a good opportunity to come along and get to know each other and committee, with some good music and a few games round the fire!🔥

P.S: Please bring your Aber cards with you so that we can get you on our track and trace!
And obviously, if you’re feeling ill please follow Covid guidelines and take the appropriate precautions.

19/09/2020

It’s nearly time for our first social of the year! Bring some drinks if you want to drink, some food to eat (takeaway or BBQ stuff) and something to sit on and come along to get to know one of the best sports clubs in Aber. Social members and sports members of any ability welcome! Don’t forget to wrap up warm, any questions drop us a message
