It’s been an exceptional year for University of Nottingham Sport.

This year, amongst much more, we:

  • Achieved a 2nd place finish in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) league tables – our highest ever ranking
  • Were named Sports University of the Year in the 2019 Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide

Elsewhere, at the recent BUCS Annual Awards, we were shortlisted in six out of 11 categories, picking up five awards:

  • BUCS Physical Activity Award – winner
  • BUCS Sportswoman of the Year (Hayley Mills) – winner
  • Student Volunteer of the Year (Aymun Khan) – winner
  • Workforce Programme of the Year – winner
  • Participation Programme of the Year – winner
  • BUCS Profile and Influence Award – runner-up

We also saw three of our students selected for the Winter World University Games and three for the Summer World University Games. In addition, individuals or teams from seven sports qualified for the European University Championships. 25 of our students have also represented 10 countries at senior international level across a wide range of sports this past year.

Other activities included hosting 420 school children at Discovery Days to raise aspirations of children in disadvantaged areas, and hosting a number of key sporting events including the British Open for Dodgeball, the Boccia National League Finals, the British Fencing GB Cup and the England Netball U17, U19 and U21 National Performance League Tournament, to name just a few.

Overall, we’re delighted to be able to have given thousands of people the chance to play, participate and excel in sport. We’d like to thank all of our supporters for helping us achieve a fantastic year of sport at the University of Nottingham.
