we are now almost halfway through the Spring/Summer semester and are all looking forward to catching a two-weeks break. We have done our best to provide you with plenty of different sports courses and recreational activities to keep your university stress in check and so that you can do your very best sport-wise for the remainder of the semester. Our current sports program remains in place until Sunday, June 4th 2017.
The current courses, registration deadlines and time tables are now available for download in the download section of our homepage or can be seen online via the Program link. To spontaneously check courses you can not only have a quick look at our homepage but can also use the Uni Mannheim app. We want to remind you that our courses do not take place on Good Friday and that even our gym in D2 remains closed on that day. Due to the school holidays the school gyms will be closed from April 10th to April 21st and the courses scheduled in these gyms are thus canceled during the Easter break. Since it might be possible that some of our course instructors are on vacation themselves, we kindly ask you to check either our website or the University app on a daily basis to see if your courses take place as usual.
We are more than happy to have you back on our volleyball court in the Friedrichspark and our tennis courts in the Schlossgarten after the easter break and to spend the upcoming months training outdoors with you. We are just as excited to announce that the season for the road bikers among you starts on Friday, April 21st. Even throughout the semester we are constantly trying to expand our program for you and were able to start offering Rugby courses since April 5th.
We have also got especially good news for the fans of spinning and yoga: We were able to reduce the price of the Spinning and YogaCard to €5 this semester. All the early birds can rejoice as well. Our gym at D2 opens at 7.00am during weekdays since last semester. So there should be no sweat getting your early morning exercise! All further additions and changes to our courses can be found in our current sport program.
Moreover, we would like to inform you about a change of our terms and conditions. The construction of the Friedrichspark sports facilities has accrued additional costs. The day-to-day operations of the sports ground demands the employment of a supervisor. We therefore have to distribute the costs among all participants of the university sports from this summer semester on. Depending on the agreement between us and the universities the costs will be either accounted for by the institutions, their members or pro-rata. Further information can be found here.
We wish you relaxing holidays, happy Easter, and lots of fun with the university sports courses!
