On Friday 27th February, in front of the University of Bath’s beautiful lake, students pedalled their way through Mean Girls and The Hunger Games.
The 3:Thirty club facilitated the evening with a purpose of collaborating the Student Union’s latest initiative of ‘Go Green Week’ and Sport England’s University Activation Programme, which aims to create more opportunities for students to get involved in sport.
More than 100 students took to the bikes which generated enough power to show the two films, with many more students watching on from their blankets in the incline of the amphitheatre.
The cycle cinema was one of many events coordinated by the 3:Thirty club which regularly hosts smaller activities around campus with the aim of offering students the chance to improve their health and lifestyle by providing a broad range of activities that are inclusive, informal and focussed on fun.
Current activities such table tennis, floorball, volleyball, basketball, judo and tennis are available for students to try at ‘Pop up’ sessions with the option to progress to weekly ‘Top up’ sessions, all of which are in keeping with the 3: Thirty ethos of taking activities to students and using unconventional venues.
Throughout March the weekly ‘Top up’ sessions that are featured include:
Every Monday – Instant Ping Pong, 6-7pm in Plug
Every Tuesday – Wheelchair Basketball, 5-6pm in the Founders hall
Every Friday – Sitting Volleyball, 7-8pm in the Students Union Building Downstairs.
To view all of the up and coming ‘Pop up’ and ‘Top up sessions, including ‘Female Only’ and ‘Postgraduate’ sessions from the 3:Thirty Club details can be found on www.bathstudent.com/3thirty or follow on facebook (/3thirtyclub) or twitter (@3thirtyclub).
