LUSWP CLUB SOCIALS One of the biggest aspects of every LUSWP club member's university experience are our club social events. Our Social Secretaries lead the organisation of the events, making sure that every single social offers something creative and different to keep everyone involved throughout the year. The Social Secretaries work hard to provide socials that are inclusive for the whole club so, no matter what your interests are, there will always be a great club event to take part in.
Club socials are a great way for everyone to get to know one another and relax outside of a training and competition environment, meet people from different squads and create some life long friendships. The Club Socials are a huge part of what makes LUSWP so special giving you a unique experience with fantastic teammates who become everyone's family away from home. With so many different people in the club and so many different events, club socials are not something to miss!
One of the most common club socials involves a night out in town on Lancaster's BUCS Club night. On alternate Wednesdays, LUSWP host themed nights out, with the Social Secretaries planning ahead to incorporate a different theme and swimming kit. On a night out the route will aways include our Official Club Sponsor and lively local bar, The Crafty Scholar, before finishing in our Student Union's night club, The Sugarhouse.
As well as our fortnightly Club Socials, we also host two formal dinners at The Crafty Scholar every year. The first, the Christmas Meal, is a festive dinner that takes place during the last week of the Michaelmas term and is great opportunity to get together with team mates to celebrate before breaking for the Christmas holiday. The second dinner, the End of Year Meal, occurs at the end of the Summer term and includes an awards ceremony to recognise the effort and successes of all club members and celebrate those leaving Lancaster in the summer graduations.
Throughout the year there are also a wide range of sober socials to make sure LUSWP also provide a chilled out environment to get away from the pressures of studying. Recent social outings have included trips to the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, the cinema and bowling. Stay-in pizza and movie nights are also a favourite in the social diary.
