The AoC Sport National Championships

The AoC Sport National Championships 2017 will take place over the weekend of 21-23 April, at the brand new venue of the University of Nottingham and local facilities.

This is set to be a really exciting event, engaging students in competitive sport as well as a number of voluntary roles. 

This year’s Championships will be run in partnership with Nottingham Conferences - the event delivery arm of the University of Nottingham - as well as Sport Nottinghamshire, Nottingham City Council and tourism agency Experience Nottinghamshire.

Now entering their 39th year, the National Championships are a celebration of competitive sport in colleges, providing recognition, enjoyment and a unique opportunity for students to compete. They also remain the largest annual student sporting event in the UK, with nearly 1,800 college students taking part last year.

College teams and individual competitors can qualify to represent their region at the Championships through regional tournaments hosted throughout the academic year by AoC Sport. In 2017, events will take place across 13 different sports – including badminton, 7-a-side football, volleyball and indoor cricket.

AoC Sport is a funding partner of Sport England and receives sponsorship from VTCT.
