NEW Staff Showcase - 2 July

We’re opening up some of Warwick’s great facilities for staff to explore, as part of a new Staff Showcase series of events. We kick off with our colleagues in Warwick Sport, who will be showcasing some of the sporting facilities and activities available at a special event for staff on Wednesday 2 July. Join us for healthy snacks and have a go at a fun taster session, or simply catch up with friends and spectate!

Need some inspiration to improve your health and wellbeing?

Come along to the Staff Sports Showcase to see demonstrations of some exercise classes, try out a new sport or class, take a quick Health MOT or find out how to relax and de-stress at your desk.

Take part in climbing taster sessions (book your session online), test your football or basketball skills, or try out mini tennis or floorball. We'll be keeping a scorechart, and prizes will be awarded after the event to the team or department that comes out top!

You’ll also be able to tour the Sports Centre, and enjoy a complimentary healthy light lunch.

If you’re inspired to get active, Warwick Sport is offering free use of the gym between 4 – 8pm on 2 July - simply register for your free gym pass during the Showcase. You'll also have the opportunity to find out more about Warwick Sport's latest staff offers.
