The first ever Loughborough Alumni Challenge Weekend took place from 30th April – 3rd May with over 100 alumni returning to campus. On Friday night there was an Alumni drinks reception in JCs from 7:30pm followed by a special alumni FND. On Saturday the matches kicked off from 1pm in the following sports:

·         Women’s Hockey
·         Men’s Football
·         Women’s Football
·         Mixed Lacrosse
·         Men’s Basketball
·         Women’s Rugby
·         Mixed Volleyball

All matches were played in good spirits yet the competitive nature was clear.

Ø Women’s football: Alumni won 2-1
Ø Lacrosse: Alumni lost 13-7
Ø Basketball: Alumni lost 80-46
Ø Women’s rugby: Alumni won
Ø Volleyball: Alumni won 3 games to 2

At 7pm Alumni met in JCs for pre-drinks and at 7.30pm a hog roast was served on Fusion balcony. There was a great atmosphere in Fusion with a Jazz band playing before the presentation of the Alumni Challenge Cup at 8.30pm.

The overall result was a tie with 3 victories apiece for the alumni and students. The hockey had to be settled so an overall winner could be revealed. There was an arm wrestle to settle the contest between a student and alumni picked from the hockey teams - the students won. David Goss (Ex SU President) presented the Challenge Cup on behalf of the alumni to Rich Smith (AU President) who accepted the trophy for the students.

After the presentation the guests enjoyed an exclusive Hey Ewe for the rest of the evening. We are pleased to announce that the Alumni Association will be able to donate over £500 to the sports clubs for all their hard work and effort in helping to co-ordinate the event.

We would like to thank all alumni who made the special effort of returning to campus. We hope to see you next year in the hope of bringing the challenge cup back to the alumni!!!!!
