The race is a chance for everyone to be involved in Varsity as no mater what your ability, you can enter.

Sheffield Hallam University is celebrating its sporting success after second year student Varun Madum won Gold and brought home 50 British University and College Sport (BUCS) points in his first BUCS Snooker Championships last weekend.
Varun who studies Computer Systems and Networking at Sheffield Hallam University put on a fantastic performance at the BUCS Snooker Championships which constitutes one of the three major annual university tournaments and is hotly contested in the Northern Snooker Centre and Excelsior Snooker Club in Leeds.
For the first time in a decade, Sheffield Hallam University ended Varsity without the title of champions. The overall score was extremely close ending in only a two point lead to the University of Sheffield; 36.5-34.5.
The highly anticipated Finals Day was full of action and saw Hallam fight valiantly to reduce the seven and a half point gap which existed at the start of the day. A massive congratulations to all of Team Sheffield Hallam who have competed in each event over the last few months and thankyou to everyone who has shown their support for the teams.

All tickets that have already been purchased for tomorrow’s final are STILL VALID for the rescheduled Finals Day on 10th April.
