Glasgow University Muay Thai shortlisted for BUCS Awards Club of the Year
Only three clubs out of the entire UK were shortlisted
Throughout lockdown, GUMT worked hard to keep their members engaged with constant social media posts, which included regular live-streamed workouts. GUMT stands to be the first winner of a BUCS award from the University of Glasgow in over five years.
Speaking to The Glasgow Tab, Captain Isla said: “It is truly an honour to be nominated for BUCS Club of the Year, and a testament to the incredible service and dedication from the committee over the past several months. The club continues to go from strength to strength, and I am so proud to be a part of this thriving community. To win this award would showcase all that has been done, and all that is still to come!”
Vice-Captain Noëmie added: “Being a part of committee has been such a central part of my life at university and working with an all-girl exec has been incredibly empowering, particularly in a sport which is traditionally considered more masculine. GUMT works hard to be as inclusive as possible, constantly breaking down barriers and stereotypes, and it is wonderful to have this recognised by this nomination.”
