C&S Update – cw5+6

Since the snow weekend resulted in a large number of cancelled matches, I decided to bundle up two weeks in one update. Here are the results from the past two weeks!

For the Ustinov clubs & societies, the two major events in these two weeks were our Chinese New Year Formal and our Clubs & Societies Fair Vol. 2. Many members of our Hairstyle and Lifestyle society helped to organise entertainment during the Chinese New Year Formal.

With three unique Chinese performances, the entertainment at the formal dinner was definitely very unusual and interesting for all attendants!

This past Sunday, shortly after our Women’s Hockey team’s triumph, we hosted a second Clubs & Societies Fair in Ustinov bar. Most of our teams and societies sent representatives to recruit new members.

While the attendance from potential recruits was not huge, the members of different clubs and societies still had a good time spending an afternoon together!

If you are interested in any of our clubs or societies and missed the fair, don’t worry! You can find contact details and meetings times of all of them on our website – HERE!

Calendar week 6 is a very full one for Ustinov. Good luck to all our teams competing!

This week’s featured match is the Ultimate Frisbee match Ustinov vs Castle! Check out the Facebook event if you are interested in watching! This is a great opportunity to learn more about a very fun sport!

Disclaimer: If you plan to visit a match, it is always a good idea to double-check the fixture on the Team Durham website: https://www.teamdurham.com/collegesport/sport/. Matches can occasionally be rescheduled, though usually no more than 48 hours before they are supposed to start.

And that’s it for this week! Please don’t forget to give the Team Ustinov Facebook and Instagram (@team_ustinov) a like and show our teams some support. If you take any photos of our clubs and socs, please don’t hesitate to email them to cs.ustinovgcr(at)durham.ac.uk for a chance to be featured in these weekly updates!
