Our comps are an easy and affordable way to stay active – and we love to have fun! At Burwood we offer Netball on Monday and Wednesday nights and 3×3 Basketball on Tuesday Nights.

The competitions are open to everyone (not just Deakin students) so it’s a great way to have a run around, have some fun, and socialise with your friends or meet some new ones!
