Reshaping Sport is a campaign designed to make sport as diverse, inclusive and accessible as possible for people of all abilities and identities. #ReshapingSport
What is Reshaping Sport?
Students, both postgrad and undergrad, continue to face barriers towards getting involved in sport. For some these may be the financial implications, the marginalisation of underrepresented groups, the overtly competitive nature that the word ‘sport’ seems to imply, or the perception that sport is only for the athletic. This campaign represents a collaboration with the University, Warwick SU and liberation groups, Warwick Sport and active leagues, and local sports communities in Coventry and Leamington to change the perception of sport, and to encourage our students to reshape sport to suit their needs.
