Over the three days the students participated in the 16th edition of EuroMilano

They played tennis, basketball, volleyball, beach volleyball, and futsal with 700 university students from different European countries including England, Belgium, France, Spain, Germany, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Croatia. 

The Monash students were proudly sponsored by the Monash Prato Centre and TeamMONASH to encourage sporting activity and inter-cultural exchange among students.

"EuroMilano 2016 was a wonderful opportunity for our students to consume a wonderful cultural experience," said Team MONASH Director Martin Doulton. “Sport was the social glue that brought people of many different backgrounds together in a unique student event. Through the strong collaboration of Monash Prato, The Faculty of Law and Team MONASH this inaugural representation of Monash University at this major European student sporting event was a great success and plans are already being laid for our students to attend next year’s event." 

Student testimonials from EuroMilano:
"The opportunity to meet students from other countries was invaluable and all the universities were super friendly and worlds of fun. I think there is not enough that can be said for the power of sport to bring people together, especially from different backgrounds, and of different native languages. Sport is common ground no matter the differences."

"I would do EuroMilano again in a heartbeat. Looking back on the weekend it was a great way not only to bond with my fellow Prato peers but, also, to meet people from all over Europe."
