Nottingham athletes head to Tri Campus Games

June 8th, 2017

Our UK sports teams made their way to the Ningbo campus on Friday 9 June to compete in the ninth annual Tri Campus Games.

The games are a unique event in the University sector, where teams from each of our international campuses come together to battle it out in eight different sports; badminton, basketball, football, squash, table tennis, tennis, Ultimate and volleyball.

The event programme includes an opening and closing ceremony, several days of fixtures, and cultural visits to Ningbo and the surrounding areas. Whilst fixtures are fiercely competitive, the theme of the Tri Campus Games is ‘Friendship through Sport’, with the athlete oath a key highlight of the opening ceremony.

Dan Tilley, Director of Sport at the University of Nottingham, said: “The Tri Campus Games is an incredible example of the international education that Nottingham graduates receive. As well as the sport, the chance to travel across the globe, meet their peers from Malaysia and China and make lifelong friendships is invaluable.”

“We’re very excited about the showcase our colleagues from Ningbo are organising and I wish all the athletes, official and support teams the best of luck in the 2017 Games!”

The 2017 Tri Campus Games kicks off on Sunday 11 June, with matches starting the following day.

The full list of fixtures can be found on the University website. Follow UoN Sport on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for live updates during the event.
