Goal of the Activity

The goal of organizing a Sport Day Tournament by the ESN is to promote physical activity, teamwork, and social interaction among international students participating in the Erasmus exchange program. ESN is a network that supports the integration of international students and aims to enhance their overall experience while studying abroad. Here are some specific goals of organizing a Sport Day Tournament:

  1. Promoting Physical Well-being: Encouraging students to participate in sports activities promotes a healthy lifestyle and physical well-being. Regular physical activity is not only beneficial for the body but also contributes to improved mental health and overall well-being.
  2. Fostering Teamwork and Collaboration: Sports tournaments provide an opportunity for international students to engage in team sports, fostering teamwork and collaboration. This helps in building camaraderie and creating a sense of community among participants.
  3. Enhancing Social Integration: Participating in sports events facilitates social interaction and integration among Erasmus students. It offers a relaxed and enjoyable setting for students to get to know each other, make new friends, and strengthen their social connections.
  4. Cultural Exchange: Sports have the power to transcend language barriers and cultural differences. Organizing a Sport Day Tournament allows students from different cultural backgrounds to come together, share experiences, and engage in friendly competition, promoting cultural exchange and understanding.
  5. Stress Relief and Recreation: Studying abroad can be challenging, and students often face academic stress. A Sport Day Tournament provides a break from academic pressures, offering participants a chance to engage in recreational activities, relieve stress, and have fun.
  6. Celebrating Diversity: Sporting events bring together students with diverse backgrounds and interests. The tournament serves as a platform to celebrate the diversity within the Erasmus community and appreciate the different sports and games that participants bring from their home countries.
  7. Building a Sense of Belonging: Engaging in a sports tournament organized by ESN contributes to the development of a sense of belonging among international students. Feeling connected to a community enhances the overall experience of studying abroad.
  8. Encouraging Inclusivity: Sports activities can be inclusive, catering to participants with various skill levels and abilities. By organizing a Sport Day Tournament, ESN aims to create an inclusive environment where all students feel welcome and can participate regardless of their sporting background.

In summary, the goal of the ESN Sport Day Tournament is to provide an inclusive and engaging platform for international students to participate in sports, promote physical and mental well-being, foster teamwork and collaboration, and contribute to the overall positive experience of studying abroad.


In the afternoon we went to a local Salerno beach to set up the volleyball court; then we formed the 4 participating teams and started the tournament.
At the end of it, the 6 winners received the opportunity to participate for free in the first subsequent event.
