  • Dom and Elly

    Dom and I aren't exactly avid sportspeople but we decided to train for the Monster Race obstacle course as an enjoyable way of keeping fit and active. I go to body conditioning circuits, use the gym and have even been dragged to Zumba which was pretty hilarious!

    After some encouragement from a friend I signed up to the lacrosse team and went to beginners training and the socials. I soon made really good friends with the team and now train twice a week, compete against other universities and am on the team committee as the Tour Secretary

    Brookes sport - rowers

    Since being at Brookes I've competed at lots of national and international events, most recently at the European University Championships in Germany where Brookes were selected to represent GB and won the first Men's 8 title. The boat club is very strongly motivated and driven to be the best that there is, and has three full-time coaches and our own gym to support this

    TASS allows me to have physiotherapy, massage, strength and conditioning training, and a small amount of funding. I also get free use of the gym and water facilities that Brookes has to offer
