Alex Perry, Assistant Direct of Sport, says, “We’ve invested significantly in elite sport here at The University of Nottingham, including a brand new High Performance Zone and Sports Injury Clinic at the David Ross Sports Village, and it’s fantastic to see so many top performances from our student athletes.

“I’d like to add a huge thank you to the coaches and UoN Sport staff who also travelled to Sheffield to support our competing athletes. All our students were incredibly well prepared and supported throughout the competition and this was critical to their performance success.”
