Warwick University Climbing Club is an inclusive and active sports club, with our aim being to get as many people as possible to experience the joy of climbing both indoors and on real rock. Whether you’re a keen climber, a beginner wanting to learn, or just here for the socials, there’s something for everyone! Some highlights include: regular outdoor trips, climbing competitions, and socials - as well as our yearly tour in easter where we get to experience some of the best rock europe has to offer.
And don't worry if you haven't got much (or any) experience - we provide free top-rope, lead and trad lessons to our members, giving them all the skills they need to climb safely either at the centre, or on a trip outdoors. And if that wasn’t enough, joining also gives you access to the iconic climbing facilities provided by Warwick Sport here on campus, so you're never too far from your next climb.
We also run a range of both alcoholic and sober socials - whether that’s terrible dancing in the Copper Rooms (the SU club), board game nights, or chilling and watching climbing documentaries, WUCC is an amazing way to meet people at the uni and make lifelong friends. And every few weeks you’ll also be able to escape from the uni and go somewhere far more interesting like the Peak District or Snowdonia!
At the start of terms 1 and 2 we will be running free taster sessions where you can try out climbing and get to know us, but don't be afraid to just come to club hours and say hi, exec will be visible and we are all super friendly (we promise) and happy to answer any questions you have. Or just come to a club social, everyone is always welcome (as long as they abide by the club code of conduct) so even if you have never climbed before feel free to come along and say hi.
Make sure to stay updated on our instagram ( @w_u_c_c ) and our Facebook ( Warwick University Climbing Club ), where you can ask any further questions you have. For more info about the club, the exec, and how to get involved, check out our Website!
Big love and send hard,
Eve Poirier and Chris Leigh
