These include use of the sports hall for basketball, handball, badminton, volleyball, squash, table tennis and netball. Discounted rates for use of the Kinetika Gym and National Pool Complex are also available.
In addition, a number of opportunities to take part in organised sport events are also available. These include 5-aside football and volleyball tournaments. University of Malta staff are also encouraged to participate in sporting events organised by the Malta Employees Sports Association (MESA) and which include, among others, athletics, football, and tennis.
Through the Institute for PE and Sport (IPES), staff are given the opportunity to learn a new sport, improve their skills, and meet new people. Interested members of staff may discover the joy of playing, learning a new skill, meeting new people, getting active and having fun through participation in their selected sport discipline.
Squash Ladder participants can use this facility to book a court for ladder challenges, or to make a 'provisional' booking to play a friendly match or do some training. Note that provisional bookings may be cancelled for you if the court is required for a squash ladder challenge. A 24-hour notice will be given if a provisional booking is cancelled and an email will be sent to you to inform you of the cancellation. Therefore, if there is less than 24 hours left, you can assume that the provisional court booking is confirmed.
Note also that:
The IPES team won the first two editions of the University Staff Volleyball Tournament. The finals are generally followed by a reception and a presentation where the winning team, runners up and all participating teams (generally around 11 teams in total) from the different departments are awarded the cups and medals accordingly. More importantly a cheque is presented to a representative of the chosen charitable institution.
