Georgie Freeman - Sports officer

Hi, I'm Georgie and I’m really excited to be your Sports Officer next year! I am here to be the student voice of sport, whether you are interested in joining one of our sport clubs, going to the gym or getting involved in our intra-mural sports (or all 3!) I am here to help you out. I work alongside staff at the Guild and at UB Sport to help deliver all the sporting opportunities that are available to you. My main aim this year is to make sport readily accessible to all and to get as many people involved in sport as possible! The sporting opportunities at our university are endless and so I will do my best to help you all make the most out of them. Send me an email or a message with any questions at all about sport at Birmingham – I look forward to seeing loads of you getting involved!
