School Sports Day makes a comeback

Another competition done and dusted. As each month passes, we inch closer and closer to the main event: crowning the Vice-Chancellor’s Cup champion.

For the newbies, here’s some background about the VC Cup. Introduced in 2011, The Vice-Chancellor’s Cup is an interdepartmental staff competition for anyone and everyone who’s interested in keeping active, but also wants to have fun in a relaxed environment.

For this past week’s event, various staff members from across the Canterbury campus put on their game face. But this wasn’t just some ordinary competition – it all came down to teamwork. Bringing back fond memories of school, the VC Cup Sports Day proved to be one extraordinary event.

From welly tossing to three-legged racing to over and under, it was quite a sight. The days were filled with cheering, lots of laughter and maybe a few expletives.

So, how are the teams stacking up?

Currently, the 2013 champions, Uniquely Essentials from Kent Union Retail, are still in the lead. Kent ‘B’ Serious has just slid into second place, but Biocelona is hot on their trail with only a one-point separation. The top three are keeping their eye on the prize, but could an underdog scoop in and come out on top? The VC Cup webpage will be updated regularly, especially after an event, so check back often to see how the teams are faring.

The next event will be the Bat and Trap, held on Tuesday 22 to Friday 25 July. Come on down to the Pavilion and cheer on your colleagues!
