Tsukuba University is offering an open class in volleyball as part of their service to the general community. 72 women will be accepted into the program, which runs from Jan. 11 to Feb. 22 on Saturdays (with the exception of January 18). There is also a class on Monday, Jan. 13, which is a holiday. The times of each session are from 1 to 4 pm. While any instruction will be in Japanese, non-Japanese speaking foreigners are welcome to participate, as much of the content can be understood from simply observing. Likewise, someone who wants to practice their English is likely to be there to help when needed.
So if you want to get some exercise and meet some new people, this is a good opportunity. To apply, visit the "Kyoiku Kokai" office on the second floor of the main administration building at the University by Dec. 12. You will need a self-addressed, stamped (90 yen) envelope for them to mail the acceptance slip in. The cost of the course is 7,800 yen. For further information, call 0298-53-2216.
