Welcome to the University of Chester Watersports, or UOC Water for short.
We are a society dedicated to various different watersports, and any new watersport activities are welcome, as we are a club that is open to suggestions. For anyone who wants to try something new we’re a great society to join. It’s a brilliant opportunity to learn new things outside of your course and daily uni life! We plan regular surf, wakeboarding and kayaking trips for everyone to join in as and when they like.
With a DOC of just £25 a year, and all sessions are discounted, this gives everyone the opportunity to partake in watersports for such cheap prices! No extra equipment is needed other than a towel and change of clothes, as all sessions provide equipment hire and is usually included in the price. You are free to bring your own equipment, however there is a restriction on how much we can bring.
In 2017/18 we had a busy year and held frequent wake boarding trips to Industry 1 Liverpool Wake Park. We went surfing in Rhosneigr, where we have established a close connection with Gecko Surf School. We also held some kayaking trips on the river Dee with DEVA canoe and kayak club.
This year we hope to run an end of year Watersports trip to Moliets with NUCO travel and hold a trip to Surf Snowdonia Wave Pool in Wales.
We have socials at least once a week which give us all chance to dress up and have a laugh with the various themes, as well as get to know one another and explore the exciting Chester nightlife. We also do joint socials with other societies which is fun, as we can meet more people in other clubs.
Watersports is a relaxed and friendly club who welcome all new members and make sure we include everyone in our events! Whether you’re a beginner or a more experienced member there is opportunity learn new skills and not feel left out. Discounted student prices give you the chance to try out new sports that really are a rare opportunity!
We are really looking forward to this year and welcoming more fellow watersports lovers,
hope to see you soon!
