Some students may not know this, but Texas Wesleyan doesn’t just have various sports for students to go and watch.
If you want to get more active, meet new students and play a new team sport, then the various intramural sports at Wesleyan could be the place for you.
The sand volleyball court was installed this semester and was put to good use with its first tournament that took place from Sept.18-Oct. 16.
Intramural coordinator Chris Windsor was pleased with the participation and organization of the new sand volleyball events.
“We had a great turnout with eight teams signing up, which is a great turnout for us,” Windsor said. “There was great competition with the final going down to the third set. There were 45 students who took part in this event and everyone seemed to enjoy it.”
Moving on to the 3-in-3 basketball intramurals, which start Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 5p.m., it’s not too late to join in the activity. You need to contact Chris or Larry at Campus Life on 817-531-4871, or visit txwes.edu for more information under the Intramural Sports link.
The matches will take place outside Stella Hall on the adjacent court every Wednesday until the Christmas break.
“We would like at least two more teams,” Windsor said, “and once we get enough teams signed up, we will probably go for four or five weeks.”
Another sport many students will be interested in is flag football. Over the coming weeks, students should start seeing more posters for this as the tournament will take place over the weekend of Nov.8-10.
“We get plenty of teams signed up for this one,” Windsor said, “and expect at least six teams again this year.”
So for the rest of the semester there are plenty of ways of to stay fit and team sports that all students are invited to be part of via intramurals.
