     Congratulations to the Polytechnic team on winning the Kyiv Futsal Championship
   Futsal team "Polytechnic" took the 1st place in the Kyiv Futsal Championship (League 2). The championship was attended by 27 teams divided into subgroups. The championship was unfortunately interrupted due to the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The boys had to change their role on the field to fulfil their civic duty. Some of them helped volunteers, others rescued their families and friends, and some took part in charity events and tournaments in support of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. I am more than sure that these difficult conditions helped our guys to unite and show such a good game in the final. The KPI team passed the final stage of the games without defeat: 5 games, 5 wins, and thus took 1st place among the teams of the 2nd League. It should also be noted that one of our guys, namely Oleksiy Bolbot, became one of the top three scorers of the championship.

Rock climbing festival at KPIskala

KPIskala Bravely Week  

On May 22-27, 2023, the KPIskala Bravely Week Bouldering Festival was held at the KPIskala climbing wall, the funds raised from the festival were partially used to award the participants and winners of the festival, and part of the funds went to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

   The festival was organised and held at the KPI "Polytechnic" Sports Complex in the KPIskala hall. The aim of the festival was to promote climbing among young people and to raise funds to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

   For climbers, perhaps the most important thing is the routes they have to climb and their complexity.

    The team of route setters prepared 25 brand new bouldering routes of varying difficulty, both for beginners who have just started climbing and for advanced climbers!
