Alumni Sports Challenge

Each year current students welcome alumni back onto campus for a jam-packed day of competition for our Alumni Sports Challenge. Both sides battle it out to win the overall Challenge title, with points gained across a wide range of sports.

You can play as an individual, bring back your former team mates or simply come along and spectate! Fixtures take place across our range of world-class sports facilities with refreshments available throughout the day. 

2021 event update

In line with the University of Nottingham's response to government guidance, the decision has been taken to cancel the tenth annual Alumni Sports Challenge on Saturday 12 June 2021.

We look forward to welcoming back all participants in June 2022 and further details on the event will follow later this year. For all enquiries, please contact Daniella Dutton at
