Plenty of good sports at Melbourne Campus
Published on 19 April, 2012
While many Melburnians were scurrying about trying to prepare for the upcoming Easter break recently, approximately 50 staff and students from CQUniversity Melbourne took advantage of one of the last beautiful warm days the fair city is likely to see for some months.
In glorious sunshine, they held their annual campus sports and activities day at Fawkner Park, South Yarra.
The event was a huge success, with staff and students enjoying a variety of sporting activities, whilst others chose to simply have a laugh, share a story and bathe in the sunshine.
Games and highlights included the ever-popular cricket with ‘Sri Lanka' vs ‘the rest of the world team', a fast and furious soccer match, some very animated badminton, a bruising game of dodge ball and a gravity-defying basketball hoops shootout.
Many students also tried their skills in a quaint local game we like to refer to as Aussie Rules Football, with some very promising handballing and some fairly impressive torpedo kicks on display!
To top the day off, a relaxing barbecue lunch was enjoyed by all.
