Hi everyone!
UNSW Kendo will be taking part in Unigames 2016!
This year Unigames will be held in Perth from the 25th-30th September, so please look out for it!

What is Unigames you ask?
Unigames is the largest Australian annual multisport event! It's held every year around September/October and hosts competitions for a variety of sports!
It allows fostering of new friendships and an avenue to truly test your skills. It is definitely recommended to attend Unigames at least once in your university career!
