Just like last year, the university campus in Bohunice was dedicated to sports and entertainment in mid-May. Just as the campus itself is growing, Campus Day took on a new dimension this year, as it was no longer reserved only for representatives of faculties from the campus, but for the first time ever, all faculties of Masaryk University joined in. And MUNI Day was born!
In the Faculty of Sports Studies´ gyms, it was possible to join group exercises in the morning, from various types of yoga, to salsa to combat-oriented self-defence exercises. Team tournaments were held simultaneously in the ball halls. The volleyball one was for eight teams, while the badminton one - in doubles - involved a total of twenty-four pairs. Those who preferred knowledge to physical activity could join in the tours of the campus departments. The Simulation Centre of the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Science´s Department of Experimental Biology and the Laboratory of Physiotherapy opened their doors.
From two o'clock onwards, the audience in the ball sports hall began to fill up, where the rematch of the floorball derby between the rectorate´s all-star and the faculty team took place. The evenly matched battle was in the spirit of a perfect sporting scenario - it offered a penalty shootout, tying the match at the very end, and the final denouement in a shootout decided only in the last fifth series. Although the faculties repaid last year's defeat to the rectorate, we were convinced that the university blue and white combination won in the first place not only on the field but also during the rest of the informal social afternoon on the campus, where it was possible to enjoy other sports activities, good food and drink and also music, both live and reproduced.
Thank you to everyone who participated in MUNI Day and contributed to its great atmosphere, and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
