2019 will see campus host the 8th annual Alumni Sports Challenge. The score currently stands at alumni 4.5 - students 2.5, and we need you to help strengthen that lead!

Join us on Saturday 15 June* for an exciting day of competition, with alumni and students battling it out across a range of sports. With 33 confirmed in total there’s something for everyone; from dodgeball to fencing and wheelchair basketball to canoe polo. You can play as an individual, bring back your former team mates or simply come along and show your support. Then why not finish the day with a well-deserved BBQ and drinks?

Register before 5pm on Friday 31 May to be in with a chance of winning a Fitbit Versa!

This year, we are introducing a £5 registration fee to participate in Alumni Sports Challenge.

On behalf of University of Nottingham Sport, 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.
