With free badminton for staff now finished – can we have more promotions?

Question:

Hi Executive,

We have been enjoying (twice now), free lunchtime Badminton for Staff & Students in the Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre.

We were told today that this perk for Staff had come to an end (it’s still free for Students). As far as I can tell it has been running for a total of two weeks.

Please could this be reinstated & better publicised, as it was a good way for our staff to be social motivated at lunchtimes with the help of exercise.

Many thanks.   

Answer:

The Sports Centres on both the Stafford and Stoke campuses do not currently run free badminton sessions for staff however, in light of the request, the following ‘Be Active this Summer’ promotions will now run at both Sports Centres specifically for Staffordshire University staff:

Sports Hall
From July 1st to August 31st
Between the hours of 12-2pm Mon to Fri we will offer free use of the sports hall for badminton on a ‘turn up at the time’ basis. If the hall is available then University staff will be able to book a court for an hour for free.
If, however staff wish to pre book a court to ensure their booking then normal price will be applied.

Gym Usage
From July 1st to August 31st
Both Sports Centres will be offering ONE month gym memberships for ONLY £15. (These can be taken out at any point during the promotion dates)  These memberships will also include a Free Fitness Test worth up to £7.00. Please note that these memberships will only allow access to the gyms between the hours of 7.00am to 6.00pm.
