Marie Schlenker

Sports Participation Officer

I am passionate about sports and as your Sports Participation Officer I will strive to increase opportunities for participation in sport. Some of my ideas include drop-in sessions for different sports, virtual sports challenges (while we are living with the pandemic) and fun sports tournaments in a relaxed atmosphere. However, I would like to create activities that YOU would like to get involved in. That's why I would like to hear from you about the sorts of activities that you are interested in and I will strive to make them happen. 

I believe that my dedication and persistence will help me succeed in this role. I have shown my dedication to university sports as commitee member of the Gliding and Street Sports societies and as president of the Circus Society. Furthermore, I have been active as a unicycle coach and as a founding member of the national governing body for unicycling, The Union of UK Unicyclists. I believe that my past experience in organising sport at the university and increasing participation in a niche sport will help me create exciting new sports opportunities for you.
