De Montfort University launches Varsity campaign

By Bethany Surridge 

De Montfort University launched their Varsity campaign, earlier this week.

The 2-week long campaign looks to showcase the best of both De Montfort University’s and the University of Leicester’s sports teams, as they go into a head to head for the 14th year of battle.

There are 66 games in total to be played, with 29 different sports.

Speaking at the launch was Great Britain Fencer, Claire Bennett.

Claire gave a fascinating and motivating talk to the sportsmen and women about what it was like to balance university whilst competing for your country.
