Getting Varsity ready

Varsity takes place on Wednesday 22 March, but the hype doesn’t start there. We challenge you to be #GettingVarsityReady all term long.

•  The party starts with an extra special MedsWeds on Wednesday 1 March! We're getting all of the Bears together at Medicine for a Varsity takeover. 
•  Head down to the Sports Centre on Wednesday afternoons to cheer on the Bears as they battle their BUCS fixtures. Royal Holloway Sport will be getting you involved with games and activities!
•  Check out @RHSUSocSport on Instagram for player profiles and sports highlights throughout March. Interested in taking part? Email
•  Are you doing something to get Varsity ready? Let us know what you’ve been up to on Instagram with the hashtag #GettingVarsityReady and make sure to tag @SURHUL and @RHSUSocSport.

Finale tickets

Varsity 2023 will end with an epic battle between our respective basketball teams before the trophy is presented to the overall winner. Due to the size of the sports hall, there is a limit to the number of spectators able to attend. If you’d like to watch the finale fixture and trophy presentation, make sure to get your free ticket. Without a ticket, you will not be able to attend the final fixture, regardless of whether you're a spectator or competitor from another sport/activity! You will need to collect a wristband from the Union Helpdesk before the event.

Book my spot!


After a bumper day of fixtures, head down to the Union Venue to celebrate or drown your sorrows at the Varsity Afterparty!

I'm there!

If you have any accessibility requirements, please email in advance of the event to let us know how we can support you to give you the best experience possible!
