University Hall – 007 Skyball

On September 7th 2013, the University Hall Residents Club Committee organised its first annual ball!!

It was said to be the biggest ball held in Western Australia and what a remarkable night it turned out to be.

The theme for the ball of course had to be 007, SKYBALL!!

Upon entering the venue all guests were greeted with this signboard, which set the mood straight away.

Over 600 University Hall residents attended the ball, which was an awesome turn out for a residential college that houses over 750 students.

Unlike other balls, the 007 Skyball was not a traditional sit down dinner with set seating. Instead it was a buffet style dinner and you could sit anywhere you wanted in order to mingle. All of the food looked and tasted delicious!

Being a major sweet tooth myself, I especially enjoyed the dessert selection, which consisted of macaroons, cupcakes, chocolate cake and more.

Dessert- YUM!!!

The Parmelia Hilton was a fantastic choice for the venue, after a while when you start to explore the place, you realise that there were in fact THREE dancefloors to choose from! This left University Hall residents spoiled for choice with a different DJ, atmosphere and music for each dancefloor!!




Some photos snapped with gorgeous Unihallers at the ball. It’s one of the only times of the year where all the girls and guys all took great effort to dress up 🙂

But if dancefloors weren’t really your thing, there was also a photobooth!! Which I think we all enjoyed a lot.

There was even a casino area for the gambling enthusiast.

Overall, the ball was really epic!! Everyone ate, drank and danced the night away. It was held at a classy venue and the drinks, music and good company kept everyone happy all night. A massive thank you goes out to all those on the Unihall Resclub for organising such a fantastic ball. I’m sure everyone who went had a really great time!!

Those who missed it, be sure to attend next year’s ball!!
