University staff recently competed in racket sports as the annual Vice-Chancellor’s Cup heats up. The matches started with a day of competitive badminton. A big congratulations to Kent Business School for taking the badminton title but also to Biosciences and EDA for finishing a close second and third respectively.
The next sport was table tennis. Again, very close at the top with Estates taking third, Kent Business School second, and Biosciences winning their first top spot of the year!
Finally, we ended the racket sports with a three day tennis event. We saw some great tennis throughout the competition and a very big well done must go to History (a new entry into the Vice-Chancellor’s Cup this year) for their colossal victory – winning all their matches. The International Office finished in second, and Biosciences in third.
A big thanks must go to all the departments for taking part and making the event thoroughly enjoyable for all, and thanks to those at Kent Sport for putting on a great week of racket sports. You can view an album of photos from the racket sports games on our Facebook page.
