#SheCanSheWill UV Event

Last week, the University of Stirling held their first ever UV Sport and Fitness Fest for women, as part of their celebration of the #SheCanSheWill campaign. Stirling Students Union and Stirling Sports Union ran the event, which involved taster sessions of different sports, including a volleyball session run in partnership with the University’s Volleyball Club.

For the event, which took place on the 27th of November, the hall was decked out with special UV lights, with fluorescent tape used to mark out the lines of the court. Participants were advised to wear white clothing although high-visibility jackets were available, and the balls had been covered in tape to help them be seen in the dark.

6 members of the women’s team were on hand throughout the night to help run the volleyball session. The hour-long taster class involved some warm up games and mini 4v4 competitions. The session was well attended, and everyone enjoyed the class run by the team!

Megan McGrail, one of the university’s women’s team had this to say: “I ran into one of the girls that came to the event and she said that volleyball was her favourite event!” As a club, SUVC has been excited to be part of such an event, and hopefully in the future will run something similar!
