Varsity: one week to go Articles

The excitement is building with just one week to go until the biggest sporting day in the university calendar, the Varsity.

Nine teams will be competing for two campuses, Greenwich and Medway, in a festival of sport for the right to take home the Varsity trophy.

Teams will take part in badminton, football, rugby, netball and basketball. There will also be fans' challenges, including rugby drop kicks, penalty competitions, a hockey showcase, table tennis, pool and video games.

This year's event takes place at the Avery Hill Campus and marks the opening of the university's new £1.7 million all-weather floodlit sports pitches.

The state-of-the-art pitches will be the new home for the university's football, hockey, rugby, American football and lacrosse teams.
