Freshers is an amazing time is a memorable experience, but you have a lot of decisions to make. And, one of those decisions to make is ‘what should I do with my free time?’ Well, my advice would be, if you haven’t considered so already, join a Sport.

I could write another entire article detailing to you the reasons why you should join a sport, why it would be so beneficial for CVs, blah blah blah. Instead, this is something different. This article will detail ALL of the sports below that are available at Kent University. Every single one. Now you can get a taste for each of the sports on other, little bit about what they entail and whether this sport might be suitable for you. So read away, and perhaps find something that gets you fit.

(Also, these sports were put in alphabetical order to avoid favouritism and arguments over ‘who is the best sports’. Come on, they’re all great…)
