Frequently Asked Questions 

 

Do I need to have a UoN Sports Membership to attend these courses?
No - you don't need a UoN Sports Membership to attend our weekly, timetabled staff sport sessions. UoN Sports Membership is required, however, to use the sports facilities on a casual basis.
 
Does it matter if I can't attend all the dates of the course?
It doesn't matter if you need to miss a session - just let Staff Sport know so that the instructor can be informed. You will be charged for all sessions in a block booking, so please be aware that refunds for individual sessions cannot be made (unless you have an extenuating circustance).
 
The sport I am interested in has already started - can I still sign up?
If there are places still available there may be the possibility to sign up later for a course - please email Staff Sport to find out.
