Tryouts: fun or fear?

2nd October 2014

At the beginning of a new university year, tryouts are taking place at many of the University of Nottingham’s sports clubs.

But what is the experience like for students?

This was the question asked on URN Sport earlier tonight.

Sports Editor Patrick Hildred went out and about on campus to find out…

Sam Barker was joined by Calum Scotland and Jordan Rinsler in the studio to give their take on tryouts. They began by discussing how appropriate they were for clubs of different sizes, and also highlighted how for some sports, finances can also be a factor in students trying to make teams.

The panel finished by considering to what extent tryouts can be intimidating, and discussed what could be done to promote more inclusivity in the university’s sports clubs.
