Nottingham Games 2021 will be played behind closed doors


We are extremely excited to announce that the “Nottingham Games” will take place on Sunday 13 June at David Ross Sports Village and at NTU Clifton Campus.

The Nottingham Games will be an exciting one day competition, where students from both universities, will get the opportunity to take part in a full day of competitive fixtures. We recognise that 2020/21 has been an extremely challenging time for our Sports Clubs, and we are delighted to create this one day event with Nottingham Trent University.

This will provide students with the opportunity to represent their colours and honour a long-standing tradition of competition against each other in a year where a traditional varisty has not been possible. The Nottingham Games 2021 will also provide an opportunity to reflect on a challenging year in which competitive student sport has been significantly impacted.

Off the pitch, clubs have worked exceptionally hard to maintain levels of engagment during the pandemic ensuring that the health and wellbeing of members has been prioritised. In addition, sport clubs have delivered a number of initiatives to raise significant funds for charities and communities within Nottingham and across the UK.

When the action gets underway, 18 matches will take place at various venues across both Universities in a full programme of sporting action. To ensure the safety of students, staff and our communities, matches will be played behind-closed-doors with no spectators permitted and strict measures have been put in place to ensure matches are delivered in a safe and compliant manner.

Sports competiting within the games include Badminton, Basketball, Dodgeball, Fencing, Futsal, Handball, Lacrosse, Squash, Swimming , Table Tennis, Ultimate Frisbee and Water Polo. We will be bringing you 6 matches live throughout the day, keeping you up-to-date with all the action as and when it happens.

The following games will have a live stream:

Womens Basketball – 10 am
Men’s Basketball – 12 pm
Men’s Lacrosse – 1:30 pm
