Sports for Staff

UM SPORTS has set up special activities for employees. These activities are staff only (no students) and are suitable for all ages. 

Sports and exercise are aspects that have a positive impact on the quality of your life. However, it is not easy for everyone to integrate it into the daily routine of work and private life. UM SPORTS makes it easier with a varied sports programme, exclusive activities for employees, extended opening hours and good supervision. This way, you can be active before, during or after work.
