Based on the feedback you gave, your SU has negotiated with the University to get rid of the £20 Essex Sport Blades Pass, as of 2019/20!
As a whole, Blades members felt that the £20 fee was causing a barrier to participation within sport and the process was over complicated. As part of the negotiation, the SU agreed to take a cut to its overall sport budget covering the loss of planned Blades Pass income. We are confident that we can continue to provide a Kick Ass service to all Essex Blades Members by removing this barrier, meaning that students will be able to trial all sports clubs at no extra cost throughout the year.
