Monash College Games Recap


Week 4 of this Semester saw over 900 students attend Monash Sport's Clayton facilities for the inaugural Monash College Games.

Held over the course of one evening, a series of short competitions were held for all residential and non-residential colleges. A total of ten sports were on offer for colleges to register in, with each sport including a round robin competition with finals.


The focus of the Monash College Games was for students to have fun with their peers, try new sports, and to don their College or Hall's colours in support of their friends.


The winning colleges for each of these sports were awarded a trophy which will be engraved with their college's name, and allowed to be kept by the winning colleges until next year's Monash College Games. Students also enjoyed the Sumo Salad and pizza offerings in-between matches.


The winning colleges for each sport are listed below:

Volleyball - Howitt Hall
Dodgeball Open - Ursa
Dodgeball Women - Deakin Hall
Women's Basketball - Clayton NRC
Open Basketball - Farrer Hall
Mixed Basketball - Deakin Hall
Open Bubble Soccer - Howitt Hall
Women's Bubble Soccer - Deakin Hall
Carpet Bowls - Holman Hall
Indoor Frisbee - Ursa

Monash Staff Games Recap


Monash University staff members across all Victorian campuses had the opportunity to participate in the Monash Staff Games last month, which resulted in great fun and enjoyment being had across a wide variety of sports.

Well over 200 staff members registered for the Monash Staff Games across the two days in July, with many others taking a break from their desks to visit Monash Sport Clayton campus and support their colleagues. The enjoyable, fun atmosphere of the Monash Staff Games was given an enthusiastic boost with some supporters supplying their own pom poms and fancy dress to drive their team's morale.  


Competitions ran in sessions between 11.30am-1.30pm and 1.30-3.30pm, giving time for staff members to complete their projects for the day while also enjoying casual sport with their work peers. Sumo Salad provided nutritional lunches for all players.

In a Monash Sport first, indoor cricket was offered as an available sport to register in at the Monash Staff Games. The four competing teams consisted of experienced cricketers to those playing the game for the first time, however ultimately great fun was had for all involved.
