A word from the 2017/18 Social Sec, Joe Randall:

After joining UWMCC in 2016, I have enjoyed being part of one of the best sporting and social clubs on campus and I can’t express the extent to which it shaped my first year at Warwick. Club Socials are a fantastic way to integrate yourself into one of the most friendly and welcoming clubs at Warwick, with our exciting social calendar promising to deliver again in the forthcoming year. Toward the end of first term, we will once again be holding our annual Cricket Ball; a black tie event with good food accompanied by a well-known speaker from the world of cricket. In the past, speakers have included the likes of Paul Nixon, Matthew Hoggard, Gladstone Small and last year we had a fantastic Q&A with 2005 ashes hero Simon Jones. It also gives a chance to meet some UWMCC alumni and offers a great insight into the recent history of the club.

Every Wednesday UWMCC holds a ‘circle’ in upstairs Copper Rooms which entails three hours of discounted pre-drinking alongside other sports clubs, leading into POP!, the most popular event run by the SU. Circles are exclusive to Warwick and a fantastic opportunity to meet other clubmen, often acting as a talking point for the rest of the week and after not missing one at all last year, I can’t recommend attending enough! Many a circle has been completed on non-alcoholic drinks and socials certainly aren’t centred around drinking.

Alongside circles, we hold a variety of other socials throughout the year which have included:

  • 10-pin bowling
  • Bongo Bingo
  • Days out at Edgbaston
  • Poker nights
  • Mixed socials with other societies
  • Golf days

In week 3 of each term, we go to a local curry house for a termly club meal which allows new members to really settle into the club. This all leads to the proud tradition of adoptions which happen in term 3, giving clubmen a chance to cement themselves in history as initiated UWMCC members.

For any extra details with regards to the social side of the UWMCC keep an eye on the club’s Facebook and Twitter which will be regularly updated with regards to social events.
