Amidst the Easter break, university sport in the UK shows no sign of stopping with over 20 Championships events still to come this season!

As students across the UK are taking a well-deserved break from their studies over the Easter break, university sport has continued to thrive, with various events and competitions taking place nationwide.

UK university sport is played throughout the entire academic year. With leagues starting as early as September for the majority of team sports, the end of the UK university sport season sees a flurry of activity, with Championship finals and plenty of Varsity matches taking place.
