A Recap of Water Wars 2023

UBC’s Water Wars event took place at the amazing Aquatic Centre on the evening of October 12. This event is a great example of UBC’s spirit of teamwork, camaraderie and friendly competition.

Mixed teams of 6-8 people competed in aquatic sports, obstacle courses and of course some shenanigans in the lazy river and the rope swing. Whether it was your first time trying innertube water polo or you’re an experienced pro, this event gave everyone the chance to rediscover their inner child while competing for the beautiful champ shirts. Despite the slips and splashes, everyone was giggling and smiling their way through to the end.

Here are some of our favourite highlights of the event!


Thank you!

This event was made possible thanks to tireless efforts of the UBC Recreation Events team and all the other Intramural staff and volunteers who chose to dedicate their time to making this event the best it possibly could be. We also thank all of our participants for showing up and bringing your team spirit. Hopefully we will have as much success next year as we’ve had this year, we’d love to see you there!
