The ODU is looking for champions who'd like to setup and run OD Interest groups, clubs or societies as well as wanting to encourage ODs to find and join a club or society that appeals to them.
We (the ODU) is able to assist with setting these up by providing:
The idea is that each group would run itself whilst generally observing these principles:
Initial research shows an interest in various sport (rugby, hockey, running, water polo) and culture (music, arts). With technology available, these groups can certainly be international with local events, and we'd encourage as such.
Oct 2020: We have created a 'starter pack' of groups as placeholders. Many have ODs who have shown interest, and phase 1 will be to find managers and conveynors for the groups. Those that don't take off, we will close and hopefully others will emerge.
History, Horticultural, Wine, Drama, Art, Law, Investments, Medical, Literary, Educational Business, Small Business, Private Equity Agricultural, Advertising, Engineering science and Technology, Political Economic IT / Digital Gaming, Wildlife, Sailing,Geographic Mountaineering, Skiing, Horse racing, Motor racing, Psychology, Astrology, Maths, Theology, Architecture, Music, Philosophy, Chess, Bridge, Anthropology, Retailers, Hospitality, DIY and Property development.
Golf, Rowing, Waterpolo, Rugby, Cycling, Road running, Athletics, Cricket, Soccer, Hockey, Tennis, Squash, Croquet and Bowls
