Sheffield MedSoc

Sports

An excellent way of releasing that competitive demon inside all medics in a socially acceptable way.

Badminton



Come and join Sheffield Medic’s Badminton! You’ll get the chance to take part in doubles matches which can be friendly or competitive – you could participate in tournaments between members of our team and teams from other medical schools. Whether you’re Gail Emms standard or have never picked up a racquet in your life, medic or not, we’d really love for you to come along! We play every Wednesday evening and have squad training Monday night.

Bouldering is climbing without a harness or helmet. Our bouldering club is a friendly open club that meet on Sundays and head to the climbing wall. We'll climb for a few hours and then go to the pub for a drink, some food and a game of pool. Come and see what we're all about.

We have a great mixture of players and welcome all abilities from beginners to competitive cricketers so get involved and come join us.

On top of that the regular socials, mini-tours to play local medschools and the annual tour and national medics tournament in March (Sheffield Champions, 2013) are not to be missed!

This year our 1st team were crowned national champions for the 3rd time in the last 4 years, our 2nd team picked up the NAMS (National Association of Medical Schools) Plate and the intramural team ensured that medics remained the best team within Sheffield University.

We train on a Thursday night on the upper court at Goodwin 7-8pm and also arrange extra fitness sessions on a Monday evening in Weston Park. We play in three different leagues on a Tuesday night.

We have several socials a term organised by our Social Secs. They often have some form of fancy dress past favourites have included: food chain, road kill, and childhood nightmares. We have also had joint socials this year with Medics Basketball and Medics Rugby. We head to the Fox and Duck every other week after training to catch up over a drink. This year was the first time Sheffield Medics Netball went abroad for tour! We went to Dublin and spent our time playing netball, wandering around the city, and exploring the Guinness factory.

Rugby



Medics Rugby field 3 teams every Saturday in local Yorkshire and medical schools competition and have enjoyed recent success in both, including 4 promotions in 5 years. Training just once a week on Tuesdays won’t get in the way of your studies and we welcome players with any level of experience (inc. none). Every Saturday we have socials at a local bar and then head on to Pop Tarts at the Students’ Union for what will be the best nights of your time at university! Joining Medics Rugby will be the best decision you made since deciding to study medicine at Sheffield!
