Sport forms an important part of life within Holdsworth. It provides another situation in which students can meet other lawyers and a place in which you can relax whilst enjoying playing sport with people you know. However Holdsworth also enjoy a reputation of providing strong sports teams, and I aim to further this reputation and look forward to a successful season, hopefully ending in a couple of trophies!
There are 5 teams: football (6-a-side and 11-a-side), netball and rugby. All teams except rugby compete in the intra mural leagues and always enjoy successful seasons, finishing in extremely strong positions.
Whilst all Holdsworth teams remain competitive, everyone is welcomed to try out for the teams and no prior experience is needed. Each team has a captain who works closely with the Holdsworth Sports Officer to ensure that the season runs smoothly and successfully. The captains of the coming year are usually chosen by the current captain and the Sports Officer is decided in the Holdsworth elections.
Please join the respective Facebook groups for each sport, which will be the main source of information about trials, team selections, fixtures etc.
