As Sheffield Varsity returned last week for the first time in two years, we look at what’s coming up before the events finish on the 30th March.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the annual sporting event, which sees Sheffield’s two universities, the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam, compete in over 70 sporting events at venues across the city.
Events began last Wednesday with Water Polo at Ponds Forge, and other events such as Snowsports, Sailing, Dodgeball and Rowing have already taken place.
So far, the University of Sheffield are winning 8-5, but with over 60 more games to play, the competition is up in the air.
