UWA Forward

Vice-Chancellor's Voice

Good morning. It's been a fantastic season for sport at UWA. Our football club, University, won the WA Amateur Football League premiership. The UWA Boat Club swept the State Rowing Championships, taking the Overall Pennant as well the A, B, C, D and E Grade pennants - the first club in nearly 50 years to do so. We've also fielded one of our largest teams at the Australian University Games.

UWA Sports is a key way we engage with the local community, bringing thousands of people of all ages into the University.

It's also a way for staff to connect with each other. UWA Staff Sports Fun Day is coming up in early-November. Whether you’re interested in a traditional sport or the Great Treasure Hunt, make sure you register online and get in touch with your area coordinator.

And if you're an Eagles supporter, best of luck on Saturday!
