Friendship through sport

Hello and welcome to our brand spanking new sport blog.

My name’s Mike and I work within the University’s Marketing, Communications and Recruitment team.  We decided to launch this blog to celebrate the rich sporting tradition of the University and our local area.  Although performance sport at the University is very likely to feature, we’re aiming to offer something for everyone whether you’re competing for a place on Team GB, a keen amateur or quite happy to watch from the sidelines.

Without wanting to overdo the clichés in the first post, what better way for us to kick things off than our very own Tri Campus Games?

TCG 2014

The University’s unique sporting event is back for a sixth year, bringing students from all three of UoN’s international campuses together for a week-long festival of sport. From Sunday 8— Friday 13 June, 180 athletes will compete in eight different sporting events – battling it out on grass and hard court for the right to be crowned TCG 2014 champions.

The games are being hosted this year by the University of Nottingham Ningbo China, coinciding with the 10th anniversary celebrations taking place in Ningbo throughout the year.

Of course, the Tri Campus Games aren’t just about sport. The event also provides a great opportunity for competitors to meet other students from around the world, while soaking up the local culture and student experience in Ningbo.

I’ll be travelling out to China with defending champions Team UK this year and providing regular updates on the progress of the games right here. So stay tuned for the latest results, reflections and tales from TCG 2014.
