Varsity

Sports club from Teesside University have teamed up to keep the coveted Tees Wear Varsity trophy here on Teesside for another year. The annual sporting clash with counterparts from The University of Sunderland took place on Wed, 21st March with Teesside running out 10.5 to 8.5 winners after a hugely enjoyable day of sport.

There were 18 matches across a range of sports and activities including archery, badminton, basketball, cheerleading, dance, equestrian, football, hockey, netball, rugby, tennis and snow sports. Amongst our most impressive wins were a 1515 to 1300 victory for archery, 6-1 and 10-1 wins for our football teams as well as a 6-0 demolition job by Women’s Hockey!

Amy Preston, President Activities, said: “It’s great to add the Varsity trophy to a brilliant few months of sporting success including league and cup wins plus plenty of finalists and high performing clubs and teams. We’ll be celebrating our whole season separately very soon but I just want to say thanks and well done to everyone who represented Teesside here at Varsity so superbly. I also want to pay tribute to the officers, staff and students from Sunderland for making us feel so welcome and being such good spirited and worthy competition!”
