Emily Aldridge-Snell Vice President, Activities & Services at the University of Winchester SU, said: “We are so thrilled with the result and so proud of our students! There was such an amazing atmosphere and sense of belonging, it was incredible to see the huge positive impact sports has on the University experience! 

“We also wanted to say how incredible the Sports Facilities staff were in aiding us with the event, we really couldn't have done it without them. Helen Thomas, Ryan Sanger and Claire Mitchell are all incredible assets to the University and are greatly appreciated by us and our students.”
