Superteams

If you don’t know, Superteams is THE must attend event of the year. Hosted by the Students’ Union, students organise themselves into teams of 10 and compete in a huge variety of activities and sports across the weekend. Prepare yourselves for banter, sweat and a lot of mud!

With events ranging from basketball to bleep test, football to obstacle courses, this weekend is most certainly not for the faint hearted. It is also an opportunity for those who aren’t involved with sports clubs to demonstrate their athletic abilities. Perhaps even get scouted! The only requirements are that you must be a current student at Aberystwyth University, you must have Team Aber Insurance, and you must be prepared to do anything for your team… No pressure!

Womens: 14th to 16th February 2020
