Joensuu Sports Afternoon 17.2.2015

The Sports Afternoon is a biannual event organised by the Student Union. You can participate if you are student or staff person of UEF or KUAS. The purpose of the Sports Afternoon is to give our students an opportunity to try new sports for a very affordable price (or for free) and to get everyone moving at least for one afternoon per semester. There will be no teaching after 12.15pm so everyone is able to take part – and we recommend you do! There is a great choice of activities, the list of which is below. Once you have chosen what you would like to do, please remember to book yourself a place (instructions on how to book next to each activity description). We recommend you book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment – these activities tend to fill up fast.

After you have done your exercise you can reward yourself at the AFTERPARTIES at Kerubi and Ilona. Both clubs will be heaving with people, live music and fantastic atmosphere from 10pm to 4am. One ticket (5e) gives you admission to both of these parties so you cruise around and see which party you prefer! Tickets are sold at the Student Union office until the 16.2.2014 . There are a limited number of tickets available to these parties, so be quick to get yours.

You can participate to Sports Afternoon without Sykettä sticker.

The Sports Afternoon and the afterparties are for everyone to enjoy and we really hope to see you at some of the activities!

Sports Afternoon Afterparties


As per tradition, the Sports Afternoon is all about working hard and playing hard! After an afternoon of exercise you totally deserve a good night out with all your sporty friends. The Sports Afternoon Afterparty is a legend among the students of Joensuu and simply cannot be missed. This year we have added more fun to the mix by organising not one, but TWO Afterparties! The great news is that you only need one ticket that will give you admission to both parties.

There are a limited number of tickets with a badge available for a ridiculously low price of 5 e (plus cloakroom fee upon entrance). This event is going to be a sell-out, so remember to get your ticket in time. Tickets available at the Student Union office and Carelia hall on 13.2. and 16.2. at 10am-2pm.
