Top 6 reasons to come back to Nottingham for Alumni Sports Challenge

On Saturday 15th June, we will be welcoming Alumni back to University of Nottingham for the annual Alumni Sports Challenge.

The day will include individual sports’ competitions run by student volunteers from our clubs as well as an opportunity to enjoy food and drink with fellow participants.

Don’t fancy getting sweaty? Not a problem! Spectators are very welcome at all aspects of the event and we hope to see as many former students as possible!

We’ve put together our top six reasons to come back to Nottingham for Alumni Sports Challenge, be sure to let us know why you are coming back in the comments!

  1. Be reunited with old team mates

We all know what life can get like, you’ve been talking about getting a coffee or catching up with old team mates for months but can’t find a date time or place. So let us take the stress off your hands and organise it for you- just post the event in your group chat. Nottingham, 15th June, bring your trainers!


  1. Tell stories about your university days

Do you think the current students need informing what the good days were like in Nottingham? Well, we are pretty sure it will be ‘story time’ at Alumni Challenge as you get nostalgic and all the memories come flooding back.


  1. Visit the £40 million David Ross Sports Village

Have you exchanged jealous messages with your fellow graduates that the David Ross Sports Village wasn’t available for you as a student? Well this is your official invite to see the investment and commitment to sport from your university… if you are lucky a current student might give you a tour.


  1. Free food

A BBQ will be running throughout the day, so you can relax and enjoy a meal on us! Would you have turned down free food in your student days?


  1. Support a good cause

This year, we are introducing a £5 registration fee to participate in Alumni Sports Challenge. The ticket income will be donated to our official charity partner, the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC). CBTRC was established at the University in 1997, bringing together a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals and researchers with the aim of improving the understanding, treatment and outcomes of children and young adults who develop brain tumours.


  1. Defend the title

Alumni are currently winning the series as the score currently stands Alumni 4.5 to Students 2.5. Could you help alumni defend the title to widen the lead?
