Hydro Team

External Engagement

We are a group of under/post-grad/MsC/PhD students from all disciplines who design and construct a 2-3metre long energy efficient remote control boat incorporating innovations with the aim of making shipping more efficient.

The boat is entered into the international HydroContest in Lausanne, Switzerland in July. We meet on Thursdays at Boldrewood Campus - if you're interested in joining or just want to find out more, either email or Facebook message us! Throughout the year members design, construct and test a 2.5m by 2.5m water craft to carry 20kg and 200kg weights in three races.

Responsible for the craft's hull, appendages, electronics and control system while marketing their team, sponsored by Hydros and UK companies interested in modern energy and nautical innovation..

Roundnet Spikeball Club

Indoor Team Sports

We can't go as far as saying that Spikeball will make you better looking, more likeable and finally be able to talk to that cute person across the street... but it will.Spikeball is a team sport played by two teams of two players around a Spikeball set. Opposing teams line up across from each other with the Spikeball set in the centre. The ball is put into play with a serve. Once the ball is served the players can move anywhere they want-there are no sides and boundaries. The object of the game is to hit the ball onto the net so that the opposing team cannot return it. Each team is allowed up to three touches to return the ball, similar to volleyball. In TriVolle, possession changes when the ball hits off the net. The ball cannot hit the rim and must get off the net in one bounce. The rally continues until the ball isn't returned properly.Spikeball is currently the fastest growing sport in America with over 1 million players. Here's why: https://youtu.be/FLfGpcA2Pl8Now put your tongue back in your mouth and come and #jointhemovent because #weaintlikinifyouaintspikin.
