Our Club Development Officer Matt has a great message to clubs for World Mental Health Day.
Remember Mental Health is important to everyone and the University is committed to providing an environment in which to work and study which supports the wellbeing of all staff and students. So even if you’re not be part of a sports club it’s worth thinking about how this might be relevant to you, whether it’s in your workplace, department, social circles, residences or elsewhere.
Tom Hall, one of the Archery Scholars and a Chemistry PHD student, has been selected to represent Team GBR at this year’s World University Games in Chinese Taipei, 19 – 30th August.
After crashing out in the first round, stage 1 of the World Cup in Shanghai, Tom only had a couple of weeks to pull himself together for stage 2 in Antalya, Turkey. A week of hard physical training with a more powerful bow and a good result at the UK masters, set him up well this time and he came in feeling more confident and determined to do better.

This time last year, Alice Cobb was preparing to help launch the first ever Warwickshire stage of the Women's Tour at the University of Warwick as a member of the Cycling club. Fast forward 12 months, and she will be racing through our campus and her former place of study for 2017 OVO Energy Women's Tour.
We took Team Warwick's 1500m specialist, James McCarthy, to see Jo Hankey (Senior Lecturer in Sports and Exercise Science) at Coventry University to analyse his VO2 max performance ahead of his season of racing. V02 max is the maximum rate at which the heart, lungs, and muscles can effectively use oxygen during exercise. It's known as the gold standard measure of physical fitness because it measures a person's individual aerobic capacity, something incredibly important when James' races are often decided by a matter of seconds!
The aim of Team Warwick Performance is to support student athletes to reach their potential. We do this by creating an environment of excellence both for individuals and teams. Our support team provides a full programme of strength & conditioning, nutrition, dedicated coaching, injury rehabilitation and much more.
