The Active Campus programme is an initiative encouraging both students and staff at Wrexham Glyndwr University to be more active and make healthier choices every day.
The initiative was set up with the help of funding from Sport Wales, and was introduced to promote healthy lifestyles both in the workplace and at home. This is a Corporate Health Standard (CHS) set out by the Welsh Assembly Government.
The CHS is the quality mark for workplace health promotion in Wales, presented in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum categories to organisations implementing practices to promote the health and wellbeing of their employees.
The programme we promote from the Sports Centre is to encourage anybody and everybody to take part in some form of activity. It could be something as simple as using the stairs instead of the lift and choosing a piece of fruit instead of a packet of crisps for a snack.
The Wrexham Glyndwr Sports' team organise a number of activities which are specifically aimed at staff and students to encourage participation in physical exercise alongside their work or studies. There are options to take part during your lunch break or after lectures/office hours.
Futsal is an exciting, fast-paced football game that is widely played across the world and is officially recognised by both UEFA and FIFA. Futsal is a five-a-side game, normally played on a flat indoor pitch with hockey sized goals and a size four ball with a reduced bounce.
Staff and students can join in with a game every Friday at 12pm.
The Sports Centre has a number of bikes available to hire for staff and students. Find out more about the cycle hire scheme here.
