 Volleyball Halls Tournament

  • Winner: Hello Students 
  • Participants: 38
  • Teams: 5 teams across 7 halls 

Before the tournament started each team was assigned a member from the volleyball GASA drop in to teach them some basic volleyball techniques. These members then then acted as mentors/coaches to teams throughout the tournament.

The tournament used a league structure with teams playing each other twice in 5 minute fixtures across two courts.

Once all fixtures were completed, the fifth place team was knocked out and two placing fixtures were played for 1st and 3rd place. These games were played up to 25.

The final was between Hello Students and James Watson and saw a closely fought fixture with each team trading places for the lead.

In the end Hello Students won the fixture 25-23 to win the volleyball halls tournament!

Basketball Halls Tournament

  • Winner: Rees Halls
  • Participants: 46
  • Teams: 5 teams across 7 halls 

The tournament used a league structure, with all teams playing each other in 5 minutes fixtures.

Rees Halls placed first in the tournament after winning 4 games, with an overall points difference of +24.

James Watson placed 2nd, with Unilife taking 3rd. Margaret Rule, Trafalgar and Greetham Street combined to make one team which placed 4th, with Hello Students taking 5th place.

Congratulations to everyone who played!



Well done to everyone who took part this semester!
