Represent the University of Adelaide at the Southern Uni Games instead! The standard of competition is high, the social activities exclusive and, this year, it's all happening in the Cats: Geelong, from July 2 - 6.

What's it all about? The SUGs are the regional/qualification event for the Australian University Games (AUG), hosting universities from South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania across 20 sports. Your typical Uni Games day will go a little something like this:

  1. WAKE UP! (you've got a game in 20 minutes)
  2. Throw down some Powerade with a cheese and bacon roll to go
  3. Limber Up
  4. Get your Game Face on, it's match time
  5. Celebrate beating Melbourne University
  6. Repeat steps 3 - 5, with carb loading and VIC vs SA bantering in between
  7. And after all of that, it's off home for some post-game strategizing with the team...dressed in a Jungle-inspired costume.

When: July 2 - 6
