VUT Softball players playing against 1st year students
The Vaal University of Technology Sports Department has 16 sporting codes that caters for all students. VUT sports not only promotes health and fitness but a spirit of camaraderie and the establishment of life-long friendships through their sports teams.
VUT held a Sports day for all first years as part of the O-Week First Year Experience on 24 January. This was an opportunity for first year students to select and join a sporting code best suited for them. The day was described by Thabo Mabulelong; Head of Department: Sports and Recreation as a day of celebration by the university, a day of fitness and fun for the VUT community and students, a day of finding athletes to capture nations and above all give platform for the students to discover their talents.
