Vice-Chancellor’s Cup 2017

Fabled staff tournament the Vice-Chancellor’s Cup has returned for 2017! Gather your squad of staff members, pick your events and battle other departments for a chance to be crowned champions and claim the Cup! The tournament is a staff-only event featuring a variety of sports and activities, for all ages and abilities. Any member of University staff is welcome to participate, with the emphasis on encouraging staff to be active in a fun and friendly environment. It’s a chance for staff members who wouldn’t normally meet to interact and get to know one another.

Last year’s winning team captain, Famy Rashid from the School of Engineering and Digital Arts, said ‘We have been absolutely impressed with the organisation and dedication of the Kent Sport team in putting the events together. The VC’s Cup has really inspired us and we now have a regular running club, weekly netball, badminton and tennis practice and we’ve just bought an ultimate frisbee!’

You can view the full calendar of events and follow the results on the 2017 tournament webpage. Photos from the first event, Gladiators, are now up on Facebook.
