OUR PEOPLE IN ACTION
HOW TO JOIN THE CLUB?
Students do not need to audition to join us, we are a beginner-friendly club!
"Every sport tells you to join their family. Only in tchouk have i genuinely felt like part of a family. Our sport isn't common, but the people in here even less so. Tchoukball has been the best part of my uni life, even before i step on the court."
- Arvin, SCIS Year 2, Guy's Vice Captain
"I heard the tchoukball is very fun and it helps to cultivate teamwork. I think this will help me to foster great friendships and also help to stay physically fit at the same time."
