The Squash Club

The Squash Club, experiencing new and enthusiastic life this year, expresses a warm welcome to new members, Both Beginners and Experienced Players.

An AGM was held in the smoking room at 7.30pm on Monday, 8th March. Apart from the election of the new committee, the prospect of two club nights per week to alleviate a high demand on court time was discussed.

An Open Night will be held on the 15th March at John Reid's starting at 7.00pm. Feel free to come along to play, ask questions or just look.

By joining the club you not only participate in a great fitness sport in a friendly atmosphere, you also use courts in close proximity to varsity at cheap rates.

Squash on Monday nights is free (includes rackets and balls). Also enjoy concessions obtained only by joining the club - 20c off court costs whenever you play.

Martial Arts

The Vic. Rembuden, Martial Arts Club is a branch of the Rembuden Institute, New Zealand's largest and most well known martial arts club. It is open to both university and polytechnic students offering top instruction in Karate, Kendo, laido and Jo do.

The Director and Chief Instructor of the Institute is the internationally respected John Jarvis, holder of 9 Dans which include: 5th Dan Karate, 2nd Dan laido, 1st Dan Jo do and 1st Dan Tanjo. This makes him the most qualified martial arts instructor in the South Pacific; in these times of bogus Karate instructors it is refreshing to find an instructor who is legitimately qualified and recognised by Japan.

The club trains at the University gym on Thursday 6pm to 8pm and members may train at main dojo sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesday and Fridays 6pm to 8pm or Saturdays 2pm to 4pm. It is hoped that students will recognise the opportunity to join such a respected club. Come and see us if you are interested, but remember, it is hard training in the true Japanese way.

Thank you for reading this. Any further details may be obtained from:-
  • Leo Donnelly - 893-423
  • Chris O'Connor - 791-275
  • Headquarters - 897-871


V.U.W.J.C. starts this year on Tuesday 16th in the Judo Dojo located in the basement of the Gym, starting at 7.00pm.

Classes this year will be taught by Japanese trained Black Belt exponents of the Art.

All who would like to learn Judo, or learn about the sport are very welcome.
