We’ve asked one of our Cheshire campus activators a few questions about why you should get into sports at MMU and also about her role as an sports activator!
Name: Chrissie Langley
Course: BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise Science
Sport: Badminton, squash, netball, athletics, tennis, hockey and basketball!
What made you become an activator?
I showed a keen interest in participating in Active Campus sports last year, which made me want to get more involved along with gaining work experience which relates to my degree. I also want to get people who aren’t that active involved and become as passionate in sport as myself!
What do you love about Sport?
I’m keen to keep fit and lead a healthy lifestyle and sport is one of the many ways in which I can achieve this. It is also a great way to make new friends and relieve some of stress and anxiety that your studies can sometimes bring upon you.
Why should people get involved with sport at MMU?
Getting involved in sport is a fantastic way to become more involved with the university, its staff and its students. Sports allows for opportunities that can enrich your CV through playing, coaching or taking part in some of the charity fundraising that is organised. Sports can also be used as a good incentive to keep a fit and healthy lifestyle whilst enhancing your overall university experience.

What is your greatest sporting memory?
I’m torn between two. The first one is making my debut for Wales’s under-21 hockey. And my other is playing for the MMU Cheshire badminton team!
