On Wednesday 21st March, the University of Derby took on the University of Northampton in the fifth year of our annual Varsity competition
The event is a celebration of all things sport at the Universities and saw our teams battling it out throughout the day with a total of 29 fixtures taking place
We went into the day with a comfortable 4-1 lead, thanks to wins from the Union Athletics, Equine, Swimming and Men’s Table Tennis clubs all winning their fixtures, with an unfortunate loss for Trampoline. So hopes were high that this year would be our time to finally win the coveted title of Varsity champions! From there on out it was plain sailing as we racked up the points and had accumulated enough to secure the victory by 4pm
We also went all out this year with a full media suite to live stream the event thanks to Cloudbass and our wonderful media students, who all did an amazing job presenting, producing and filming content throughout the day. Providing a platform for students to gain vital, real-world learning experience, as well as video content for those who couldn't attend the event. You can check out the live stream over on the Union of Student’s Facebook page.
We’d like to say a big thanks to all of you that showed support throughout the day. We’ve broken our records in BUCS this year and we’re sure this win will give all Union teams a boost for their upcoming fixtures!
