Sports

Spending a day at the Utrecht Science Park isn't the most active way to spend your day. Maybe you can count the long, windy route the Utrecht Science Park as sport, but the rest of the day is mostly spent sitting in lectures and the UBU. 

And that is sometimes a shame, because sport can have a very relaxing effect and is a good way to clear your mind. Exercising reduces stress and we all really need that. So why not join us in the Welfare Week to participate in the various clinics we offer and try something new: maybe Boxing, Hoop Dance or just a Bootcamp?

Wellbeing Week Agenda

Boxing is a tactical martial art in which the coordination of feet, eyes and hands, and fitness are central.
