The Chester Alumni Men's Basketball Team

University of Chester students past and present gathered on the Parkgate Road Campus last weekend to take part in an old boys and girls versus current students sports tournament.

Following the Warrington alumni’s successful performance at Padgate Campus in May, around 50 Chester alumni returned to the University to see whether they still had what it takes to beat the student teams.

After some very close games, the alumni ladies’ basketball and netball teams (netball, pictured left) were victorious but the current students fought back to win football, men’s basketball and hockey.

Clare Wride, Alumni and Development Officer at the University added: “It was great to welcome the old boys and girls back to Chester to take part in this tournament. It was good fun, no one took it too seriously and everyone had a great time. We hope that the alumni versus current student sports tournament will be an annual event and there are already plans to make next year’s event bigger and better.

“We’d encourage any former students of the former College or University as it is now, who used to be involved in a sports team, to get in touch and register their interest in being involved in next year’s tournament.”

Anyone wishing to register their interest in next year’s event should contact Clare Wride on 01244 511005 or email: alumni@chester.ac.uk
