What is the Vice Chancellor’s Cup?

For anyone who hasn’t heard of the Vice Chancellor’s Cup, this is an annual inter-departmental competition, for all University of Kent staff, which encompasses a series of mini-tournaments, from walking netball, bench ball and rounders, to board games and garden games. All departments/individuals and abilities are welcome. Departmental teams are encouraged to participate in each event. The events are typically around one hour long and mostly take place during lunch hours. To find out more about the VC’s Cup, the events played and the results of the last tournament, check out the VC’s Cup Highlights and results page on our website.

In line with Kent Sport’s strategy, the VC’s Cup aims to help change behaviours and attitudes towards physical activity, allowing staff to lead active, healthy, and enriched lives whilst working at Kent.
