“It is a chance for people to get back into sport who may have stopped when they got to university for whatever reason,” he said.

“Benefits of taking part is meeting new people, hence the name social sport, but as well improve your fitness and have fun.”

In Wednesday’s first session, there will be the opportunity to take part in wheelchair basketball and dodgeball.

“We are doing non-traditional sports that people may not have done before, which gives everyone a level playing field.”

The organisers are actively targeting student of all ages and abilities with the hope of building a sustainable project.

“The aims of project are to try and increase participation in young adults across all abilities and to try make this event sustainable so it can carry on at the start of the next academic year.”

The sessions will take place every Wednesday, 3pm-5pm this Wednesday (18th March) and then 10am-12 noon after that at the University’s Sports Centre.
