Rugby Excitement at ALKÜ

The rugby works started at the Alaaddin Keykubat University (ALKU) Faculty of Sports Sciences in Alanya.

Alanya Aladdin Keykubat University (ALKU) Health Culture and Sports Department under the roof of the student club "American Football and Rugby Club" was established. Officials said that they aim to contribute to the sports tourism of Alanya in the scientific environment with the studies to be carried out within the university and to train athletes for national teams in new branches, especially rugby. Underlining that the rugby branch is becoming more and more popular in our country every year and especially in universities, the club's academic advisor, ALKU Faculty of Sport Sciences Dr.Sibel Nalbant, set out with women's and men's rugby teams in the first place, He said they would work for football.


Rugby Coach Kerim Yorgancı, who stated that their first goal was to organize beach rugby tournaments in Alanya and to bring athletes to national teams, started theoretical training at the Faculty of Sports Sciences. We aim to increase the number of athletes by setting up stands in other faculty buildings. If everything goes as we want in both men and women, we aim to take part in the next championship Turkey. I would like to thank Cengiz Topçu, the Rugby Coach who provided material support for our work, and Exotic Tourism for their contributions.
