Our 2017-18 Varsity series is well underway with the next events fast approaching and a whole range of activities to get involved in.
On Friday 2 February, American Football and Lacrosse combine for an all-out American-themed sports event at Coombe Dingle and for the first time ever in Varsity history, we will be introducing Netball to the series on Sunday 11 February.
Of course, the infamous Boat Race and Varsity 10K are also taking place along the Harbourside in April and we’ve introduced some new and original events such as a Giant Inflatable Sports Festival.
If competing in one of these exciting events doesn’t float your boat, don’t worry, you can still get involved in all the action by volunteering this year.
With over 4,000 people taking part in the Varsity series over the course of seven months, there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved, and you don’t have to don a pair of trainers to do it!
You can volunteer as a steward, fundraiser or even develop your event management skills and become an event lead with each universities’ Leadership Programme. In the last five years, Varsity has raised over £50,000 for local charities and the two students’ unions involved and helped promote both universities across the City of Bristol.
