inclusive fitness festival UoB

UoB Sport & Fitness’ Inclusive Fitness Festival is a FREE weekend of inclusive sports and fitness classes showcasing the accessibility at our facilities and how you can make being active a key part of your lifestyle.

All abilities are welcome and the event is open to students, staff and members of the community, with specific sessions designed for those with a disability or long-term health condition, giving you a taster of what support to expect at Sport & Fitness. Did you know that many of our timetabled classes are already designed to be flexible and inclusive? Or that there are lots of local clubs that are accessible?

This event is a chance to discover these activities and is facilitated by university staff and our resident fitness instructors, as well as local disability sport clubs and student sport clubs. Discover the timetable of free activities below, and stay tuned for details about pre-registering for classes. For now, why not register your interest to receive further information about the weekend, by clicking the button below.
