Within any campus there are a variety of different sports clubs you can join. From fencing to rugby and football to discus, there is usually something for everyone. But, like any sport, all campus sports come with a risk of injury. Here is our survivors guide to campus sports.
Don’t be afraid of trying something new
Campus sports are about trying something new and experimenting to find out what sports suit you. Yes you may have the odd slip, trip or fall along the way but you will never know you like it unless you try it.
If you get a fall injury don’t let it put you off
All sports can cause an injury of some kind whether that is a slip, trip or fall or something worse. If you do have an accident, don’t let that deter you from carrying on. If you enjoy the sport you shouldn’t let something like a slip injury get in your way of having fun.
Make friends within the team
If it is a team sport, it would be a good idea to make friends within the team. This will create a nicer atmosphere and make your team mates more likely to pass you the ball or include you in the game. Not only this, but sports are often a very social thing. So talk to your team mates and really get involved. That way you can always have a helping hand limping off the pitch if you do have a bad slip, trip or fall.
Sports can be both enjoyable and good for you. They can often cause slips, trips and falls or other accidents but you could say that about most activities in life. So make the most of campus culture, get involved and have some fun. You never know what you might find out about yourself!
However, if you do have a serious slip, trip or fall on campus or anywhere else that wasn’t your fault you may be able to make an accident claim.
