Australian Uni Sport 2020 Events Calendar

  Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many UniSport events have had to be postponed and rescheduled, or completely cancelled. UniSport continues to monitor the progress of local, state and national government advice regarding actions being taken to minimise the impact of COVID-19 in the community and will be reviewing their event and program status on a weekly basis. Updates will be provided via their website (link below) and any major announcements will be sent directly to all students, members and stakeholders via email. The safety of staff, participants, volunteers and officials remain the highest priority during this time.

See UniSport Australia COVID-19 Updates for latest information.
