    I was wondering about this myself as well. Is there anywhere within the Uni' that you can watch football matches (i.e. do they get shown at the bar?), or would you have to walk into town to watch them in a pub?

    Also, about the football teams. I'm good, but not that good. So I very much doubt I will get into the Team Bath Football team (actually, make that impossible). Are there any inter-hall competitions and the like for the more casual players? And are the football pitches available all the time, so that if you want to go and have a kick about you can do so?

    Thanks .
    the su bar shows big matches usually, but a lot of the time you can ask and get channels changed if no one else is watching anything.
    parade bar shows big big matches only, i think.

    yeah there are ARSE leagues (associated residence something something) where you play other houses and stuff. i imagine the football society has casual games. the astros are free to play on, but theyre usually gone quickly - but that doesnt matter. if you live in westwood, theres a fairly large green bit just before the golf course, and for eastwood/marl+sols theres the pitches at the side.

    To anyone already at Bath: I noticed that the uni doesn't have a road cycling club, so was just wondering if there was any sorta cycling going on at all? Have any of you seen any 'road' cyclists (ie. cycling shorts, racing bikes etc.) around Bath Uni?

    Thats nice to hear.. i mite not b good enough to get in the main football team so da ARSE league is good as a backup coz i surely wanna play some sorta competitive football..
    Oh by the way how much do joining these societies cost? How much is the cost for joining the golf society please? Thanx

    If you get together enough members, you can start one yourself

    ^ Seconded. You can do two clubs in my opinion. You won't have time for any more than that.

    Societies are a bit more flexible but I'd still only join a couple. You need to balance work, going out getting rat arsed, doing sports/societies stuff, and living in general (ie shopping, cooking, laundry etc).

    Although some societies do barely anything, I reckon they're just supposed to sound cool. Like ChocSoc.

    I know, I know... It's not realistic. It's just basically all of my interests listed :p:, even the slightest ones. But still, if there are at least 30 people in each society, there will be many people in Bath who share my interests And that's a reason 101 why I want to go to Bath

    Justin..teaching people maths? How is that? Id like to teach people sociology!!
    lol! teaching is actually fun you know as long as you are good & confident at the subject!for me, i've discovered a lot of new things that I never knew even existed & since I was once an A-level student myself,I seem to understand how my students want to be explained! & I always get to boss around them which isnt something that I get to do often in my life!

    my advice would be ... go for teaching if you've got the time & ofcourse if you can get students!:p: it's a much better part-time job than being a data operator or typist or something!
    (Original post by burningwings)
    WOW that's alot of clubs. Jack0's right you know..it'll be pretty expensive!! Alot of dance though.. I used to do dance :P Grade 1 tap.. lol! (I was 4)
    good for you! you can always change that "I used to dance" to "I dance ... " at Bath... it's never too late & it's guaranteed fun
    (Original post by Jack0)
    lol, you know thats gonna cost you loads of money Justin? You can't join societies or clubs for free and some of them cost money to do - all the dancing ones cost money as well as horse riding and the motor club.
    I know ... I know I'll have to compromise my interests ... but don't they give any scholarships or something if you are good at it?:confused:

    One of my friends does some sort of cycling - I'm not sure what though! maybe mountain biking? Anyway he's always cycling around campus in his lycra and going off to competitons, lol.

    Lacrosse is a great club to join because a) there're always loads of beginners so it's not at all competitive and b) there's a huge social life. I joined a few clubs but ran out of time for all of them with lacrosse. Definitely worth thinkin about

    You are mistaken! I've only played 5 times in school (never in Russia - very expensive), and I'm not that good - although many people have said I'm "amasing" for someone who hasn't played, I don't believe them!!! They were just trying to make me feel better :p:

    I will definitely join Ballroom dancing, now that I've seen a movie about it "Take the lead"

    It depends on the club! I think things like the Chocolate Soc and Veggie Soc only meet very occasionally on the other hand ballroom and lacrosse have about 3 practices a week!

    I think a lot of you future freshers will do the same as what I did this year, some of you worse. I ended up joining 6 things, cant remember what it cost me, musta been at least £50, and then only doing 2 sports

    Rowing - Actually went to this all year, good club, hard work and gym needed, very tight to get into the team
    Jitsu - Great club, learnt loads of things, going to be treasurer next year
    Squash - Went to the fresher presessionals, was quite good, too many members for the amount of courts in my opinion, but still should have gone, but never went again
    Wine Society - Wanted to turn into a wine expert like my boss at the restaurant
    Debating Society - Their slogan is "if you enjoy argueing then this is the society for you", I never ended up going to the first session
    Philosophy Society - I went to one session, it was very way over my head, i prefer easy philosophy, not real hard stuff!

    All in all, I think that 2 sports clubs have pushed me with my time management. I mean, Jitsu is 3 evening sessions a week as standard, but quite a few often do 6 sessions a week if they go to town club and bristol. Rowing is what you make it, there is 2 water sessions a week, 2 circuits sessions and also the many hours you have to go to the gym. All this while I had to do all my course as well, maybe shows why im not going to get a very good mark this year. Next year I am just going to do jitsu, and I maybe might join the wine society and go to it this time.

    So my advice is, join a few more than you think you will be able to do, then go to the ones you enjoy. Because sports and societies will form part of your social circle if you go regulary. I mean my social circle is, people from solsbury I have met, people from my course, people from rowing and jitsu. And you also meet their friends as well, so its all a big meeting people thing, while learning a lot to do with your sport/society.
