Overview

The department of sport and recreation has an eye to health and social values of sport. Apart from the fact that sport is recreational and enjoyable, inspiring and thrilling, it also brings students together and leads to friendships.

Sport contributes to self-development, perseverance and of course good health. Sport does more; it shapes people and teaches them to handle winning and losing. Sport reinforces community spirit. In short, sport is packed with benefits for whole University community.

The UZ administration takes the position that these benefits accruing from sports should be promoted and hence funds are provided to work to that end.
