Calling all members of staff!

Do you have a passion for sport? If so, then sign up for the University's very first annual sports day, which will take place on Saturday 13th September.

2014 marks the 125th anniversary of the formation of the original University of Aberdeen Athletics Association.  To celebrate this and welcome our new students to campus, all members of the Aberdeen Family are invited to take part in the inaugural sports day.  This exciting event will include exhibition matches in various sports, traditional sports day fun for all of the family, come and try sessions, refreshments and family entertainment.

Whether you are a graduate, current student, member of the parent and family programme or an employee, we would love you to join us for what promises to be an enjoyable, unique and memorable experience.  Registration to participate in an exhibition game costs £10 per person and includes sports registration, souvenir t-shirt, goody bag, and a food and drink voucher.

Don’t miss your opportunity to get involved and register with your colleagues today for any of the following sports:

  • Rugby
