The inaguaral Campus Sport Tournament was a fantastic success with Mech Eng been crowend overall champions after a very exciting weekend of sport!
The tournament was hosted by Newcastle University and Newcastle University Students’ Union involving 6 sports taking place over 3 days, with societies, academic courses and halls of residence encouraged to take part in a minimum of 3 of the 6 available sports. Over 300 students took part in netball, football 7s, rugby 7s, dodgeball, rounders and table tennis hoping to claim the top prize and be the first ever name on the campus sport trophy.
Captain of Mechanical Engineering Eddie Salmon had this to say about the tournament:
“It was such a great event over the weekend. Everyone I met who participated extremely enjoyed themselves and cannot wait for the next one!”
A special thank you to Mizuno for sponsoring the event who kindly gave out kit vouchers to the overall value of £1950 to the winners of each of the 6 sports.
Look out for the Winter Campus Sport Tournament which will take place in Term 1 of the 2016/17 academic year. For more info contact Denis Murphy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Liam Isaac (email@example.com)
