The Tangará da Serra Campus of the State University of Mato Grosso (Unemat) is hosting the 2nd edition of the University Student Games, InterUnemat, on September 10, 11 and 17.

Administrative Director of Campus Tangará da Serra, Carolina Tito Camarcho, emphasizes the importance of resuming the event in 2020 after being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It’s time for fellowship for our students. Years ago we already held these games and in 2019 we had a release and everything was ready for 2020 and then the pandemic came. But now we start again. I think that the issue of sports is important to communicate, so we are preparing an event that will be between courses, in an accessible way and in formats that students already use. I think it will be very interesting, it will be two weeks that I will be able to meet all the academics, so that everyone can participate.”
Carolina still shows a positive outlook for the competition.
“I have high expectations, I think academics do too. Mainly because of new modalities, for example chess, which we never had, but now we have a team and students are already training, in addition to beach tennis, which we will include in this edition. So the expectations are high.”
InterUnemat will be played in eight sports, they are futsal (male/female). indoor volleyball (men/women), beach volleyball (men/women), foot volleyball (men/women), basketball (men/women), handball (men/women), beach tennis (men/women/mixed) and chess (men) ). Female).
