‘Stamp Out Stress’ with bubble football or a 10km run

As part of the University’s series of events to help students manage the demands of exam season, staff and students are invited to take part in ‘bubble football’ at the Canterbury campus.

The unusual football takes place on Tuesday 22 May from 15.00-20.00 at the Sports Pavilion is part of the Stamp Out Stress series of events that start this month.

Bubble football involves ‘wearing’ a giant inflatable ball that allows you to knock into your opponents and bounce off them, all while trying to score goals in the traditional football format. Teams are 5-a-side and games last 30 minutes.

Another route to relieve stress is getting some fresh air while joining the University’s Canterbury 10km run.

The run, which is co-organised with Sporting Events UK, is open to students and the general public.

Starting at the Pavilion at 10.30 on Sunday 20 May, the route takes runners through the Canterbury countryside along the historic and picturesque Crab and Winkle Way. Participants will be timed and receive a medal. There are also shorter races for children.

The Stamp Out Stress series of sports activities also includes guided-bicycle rides, using Kent Sport’s Cycle Hub, one-off events like miniature golf, bubble football and a variety of fitness classes. Pre-booking for events is advisable. For further details see the Sport at Kent timetable booklet. To book tickets, please visit letsplay.simplybook.me
