Sign up now for Alumni Sports Challenge 2016!

The Alumni Sports Challenge  is back and going to be bigger than ever!

Teams go into this fifth annual Alumni Sports Challenge with the current score at Alumni 2½- Students 1½. Who will win the overall Challenge title? Will Alumni extend their advantage or will the students win the day?

Last year was a great success and this year is shaping up to be even better with over twenty different sports involved. From badminton to netball and from Canoe Polo to Ultimate Frisbee, the gauntlet has been thrown down. Sign up today to get involved in the action!

You can either create a whole team and enter together, or register as an individual and make a team on the day. Everyone is invited to get involved.

Not interested in playing? Come along and support on the sidelines, with spectators welcome at all events. Fixtures begin at 10am, with the majority starting at 1pm.

Need more convincing? The day also involves a complimentary BBQ and drinks reception. A great chance to network with alumni and current students alike and get involved in the future of UoN sport.

Jenny Murray, a current student who competed in  last year’s Korfball competition, commented:

‘Last year was great! Not only did I get the chance to meet alumni who loved the same sport as me, it was a great chance to play some high quality games. Alumni won last time, fingers crossed fortunes are reversed this year!’

Excited to take on the challenge? All registrations before 1st June are eligible for entry into draw to win a GoPro HERO! For registration please follow the below links:
