A wide variety of College sports are available to choose from and it has been the aim of the JCR to ensure that every member of Vanbrugh has the opportunity to get involved with sporting activities, even if it is just to join in with the yearly sports day event, which is a fun and stressless homage to the old fashioned school sports day.
College sport is an accessible way for students to get involved with sport and fitness without having to join the more serious University sports teams, and students of all skill levels are invited to get involved. However, Vanbrugh sport can also be very competitive. There are weekly training sessions to prepare for matches with other College Teams, as well as intensive one-day tournaments. The individual league results are collated every year to determine the winner of the renowned Inter-college Sports Cup, for which Vanbrugh has proved to be a strong competitor.
We currently have teams in the following sports:
Students can get involved by contacting either the college sports captains, visiting the reps at Vanbrugh Stalls, visiting the Vanbrugh JCR website: http://www.vanbrugh-college.co.uk/sports or contacting one of the JCR Sports Representatives.
Will you be one of them?
