DMU Students prepare for Derby day in Varsity

By Alex Murray

Students are gearing up for what looks to be yet another fantastic week of action in the 2017 Varsity.

DMU sports teams are preparing to face their counterparts from cross-town rivals the University of Leicester in a variety of sports ranging from American Football to Ultimate Frisbee.

Arguably the biggest event in the DMU sporting calendar, this is a chance for DMU students to prove that they are in fact the pride of Leicester, in what has been a fantastic sporting year for the city.

The action gets underway on Thursday, March 16, with the Mixed Trampolining, before coming to a close on Wednesday, March 22, where a final victor will be crowned.

Students are rightfully excited for the coming tournament, with university pride at stake.

Jade Parkin, a drama student, said: “Varsity is a big thing at university and I’m excited to see what happens in my first ever one!

“I won’t be competing, but the buzz around campus and watching events will be great!”
