TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss' club sports teams got together at Ballard Park on Saturday for Ole Miss Sports Club Festival Weekend.
The event kicked off on Saturday and runs through Sunday, featuring a number of unique sports. Two of the most unique sports being showcased on Saturday were fencing and iaido, which is the art of drawing the sword.
Jessica Goodson, the coordinator of Ole Miss' Intramural and Club Sports, says this weekend is an opportunity to showcase some of the less-common sports.
"I thought it was a great idea," said Goodson. "It's a great way for us to get sports clubs together and get some camaraderie between us instead of just having the rugby club or just having iaido or fencing. So it's really cool coming out here and seeing all of our clubs together."
The club sports involved in Saturday and Sunday's events included the men's soccer, lacrosse and rugby teams and the women's ultimate frisbee team. The school's disc golf team and fencing and iaido clubs were also part of the event.
Other club teams from schools in surrounding states took part in the event, including an ultimate frisbee tournament that featured schools such as Grambling State and the University of Alabama.
Mississippi State held a Sports Club weekend at Ballard Park from September 28-30.
