2013 Varsity Series Score:
Trent - 4
UoN - 8
Every year, Nottingham becomes the stage for some of the greatest sporting scenes ever to grace this fine country. The annual Charity Varsity Series sees the Trent Army face Nottingham Uni in a variety of sporting events at a number of Nottingham's most prestigious sporting venues.
Varsity is a series which brings the Trent faithful together. Even if you are not interested in sport, you will find yourself getting sucked into the heightened atmosphere at each event, with banter flying from both sets of supporters (although those from Nottingham Uni are not witty enough to come up with chants other than 'uni uni uni' or 'your dad works for my dad'... very poor effort indeed!)
The 2013 UPP Varsity series consists of:
Throughout the whole series, the Trent Tigers Cheerleading Squad will be displaying some of the amazing stunts and moves that they practice throughout the year.
As well as the Varsity Series being a stage for the athlete's of both Universities to showcase their talents in front of thousands of students, all proceeds from the series are donated to charity. The previous three series have raised thousands of pounds for Cardiac Risk in the Young, PASIC (Parent’s Association for Seriously Ill Children), which supports families of children and young people diagnosed with cancer, leukaemia and brain tumours, who are receiving treatment at the Nottingham Childrens’ Hospital. And finally CP Sport, a charity which seeks to increase sport and physical recreation opportunities for people suffering from Cerebral Palsy.
This year's series is raising money for Headway; a local charity branch which provides a diverse range of social, leisure and educational activities. The outreach service offers practical support to families, supporting people to come to terms with the change in lifestyle following brain injury.
