Sports meetings

  1.    General premise

The general premise is that the behaviour of the students of the University of Pretoria shall at all times, i.e. also at any sports meeting – including Intervarsity – be such that the image and good name of the University is not prejudiced. In this regard, an intervarsity is not considered to be an extension of Rag, but an event in its own right with a long and proud tradition.


2.      All sports meetings

(a)     A student's behaviour shall not be of such a nature that it disrupts or in any way detrimentally affects the normal course of the sports activity in question.

(b)     No spectators shall without authorisation set foot on the playing field regardless of whether the particular sports activity is in progress.

(c)     Alcohol abuse is strictly prohibited. No glass bottles and/or cans are allowed in the stadiums.

(d)    No dangerous objects or weapons as stated in paragraph 2.12 below are allowed into the stadiums.

(e)     A spectator shall subject him- or herself to the authority of the person appointed by the University or TuksSport to maintain order and shall abide by any reasonable arrangement made by such a person with a view to the discipline of the spectators.

(f)      Indecent behaviour and foul language are forbidden.
