A warm welcome to new & current Witsies! We wish you a productive academic & sporting 2015!
WHAT WE DO
Wits Sport administers sport and sporting facilities at Wits University. We work closely with the student-elected Wits Sport Council (WSC) to deliver sports programmes to students, staff and alumni, and to offer sport lovers at Wits a vibrant sporting culture. We provide the university community with opportunities to participate in a range of sports codes at the level they choose, while contributing to enhancing Wits' sporting prowess. We work to encourage the entire Wits community to see health, fitness and being physically active as a way of life.
Here's a video of the fun 2015 Welcome Day for new Witsies.
