Bond Bullsharks head North for University Games

Bond will put forward one of its biggest, and strongest, teams at this year’s Northern University Games (NUGs) which are taking place on the Sunshine Coast from July 7 to 10. 

175 Bond Bullsharks will represent the University in 19 teams across 12 different sports: basketball, futsal, football, golf, hockey, lawn bowls, netball, squash, tennis, tenpin bowling, touch football and volleyball.

The NUGs will see approximately 1700 student athletes from 11 Universities across QLD and Northern NSW compete head-to-head.

The event officially kicks off on Sunday night with the Opening Ceremony at the Wharf Tavern, Mooloolaba. Competition starts on Monday July 7 with the finals on Thursday July 10.

“We wish all our Bullsharks the best of luck in what will be a very tough comp,” said Bond University Sport and Recreation Manager, Jackie Parra.

“Each and every team have been putting in the hard yards at training in preparation for this event, and we have some really strong medal contenders – particularly in basketball, volleyball and golf,” she said.

Meanwhile, next week Bond Elite Sports Program (BESP) athlete Codie Klein will head south to Newcastle to compete in the Australian University Championship (AUC) - Surfing.

Codie will join 90 of the country’s best student surfers from 10 universities across Australia – several boasting professional international experience - at the Australian University Surfing Championships at Merewether beach from July 7-9.

After returning to Bond and the Gold Coast for a few short weeks, in early August Codie will then head to California, and from there go across to France and Spain to compete as part of the 2014 Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) Women’s World Championships Qualifying Tour.

Good Luck Codie!
