For almost fifty years students and academics scholars are contributing to the growth and de- velopment of physical culture in the University. An important role in this process is played by ac- ademic teachers of the Physical Education & Sport Centre. In the researched period, the number of teaching hours of physical education was systematically reduced from 240 hours to 30 hours (ministerial central decisions). Sports classes at the University are supplemented by sports sec- tions in selected disciplines. Students training in such sports sections have won already 434 medals in Polish Academic Championships and lecturers from the Physical Education & Sport Centre sig- nificantly contributed to those results. The Centre’s personnel consist of specialists in team games and individual sports. Their results in World, European and Polish Academic Championships have contributed to the promotion of Jan Długosz University in Europe and the world. The best section of KU AZS (Academic Club of University Sports Association) is women’s table tennis (9 medals in Polish Team Championships, 8 Polish Cups, 46 matches played in the European Cup). The sport activists of KU AZS together with the Physical Education & Sport Centre in Częstochowa organized 28 Academic Championships of Poland. In the 20th century tourism and camping were withdrawn as compulsory classes. Since 2008 students of UJD have had excellent conditions for practicing sports and recreation (Academic Sports Center).
