News from the USI Innsbruck

The USI Innsbruck literally offers “space” for new challenges

The opening of a newly-sanified synthetic turf pitch in the Pulverturm area of the University Sports Institute, the multifunctional use of which provides an additional playing field for numerous (ball sports) athletes, was the provisional conclusion of numerous renovation and redesign works in 2022. These included the renovation of two tennis courts, which are reminiscent of the hard-court courts at the US Open in Flushing Meadows, New York, not only in terms of colour but also in terms of surface. More than 5,500 enthusiastic tennis players stormed both, these and the existing granulate courts or red courts during the last academic year. For strength athletes, it is worth taking a look at the fitness and strength chamber (H 50) in the Pulverturm, the remodelling now also offers open space for functional exercises.

From 13 to 17th June 2022, 120 athletes from 20 nations competed in three disciplines (bouldering, lead climbing and speed) for the much-coveted medals of the Student World Championships in Sport Climbing. The USI Innsbruck, in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck, Unisport Austria and the Austrian Climbing Federation, was the organiser of this 5-day climbing spectacle. 

A place where dance dreams and acrobatic dreams come true

With the Dance'n'Spring dance festival and the acrobatics festival, two course innovations celebrated their (USI) world premiere in the summer semester 2022. The first event was the Dance'n'Spring dance festival, which provided a stage for more than 100 passionate dancers from 21 to 22 May 2022. Eleven workshops, from contemporary dance to hip hop and from dancehall to samba, led by top-class local and international dancers and choreographers, transformed the USI Innsbruck into the dance stronghold of Tyrol on that weekend.

The second festival highlight was also fully booked: From 18 to 19 June 2022, movement enthusiasts, acrobatics fans, creative minds and all those who felt like flying through the air and going on tiptoe - got their full value. The word "acrobatics" is derived from the Greek ακροβατώ "to go on tiptoe" .
