Sporting success at Symonds sees the highest number of students from the South East at the AoC National Championshipships
Over the past few months, Peter Symonds College sports teams have been competing for a chance to travel to the AoC Sport National Championships at Nottingham University in April.
After winning multiple AoC Regional Tournaments, Peter Symonds has the highest number of students travelling to the Championships in the whole of the South East. 95 students will stay and play at Nottingham from the following teams:
- Men’s Table Tennis
- Men’s Volleyball
- Women’s Basketball
- Men’s and Women’s Cross Country
- Mixed Hockey
- Men’s and Women’s Tennis
- Men’s Rugby
- Men’s and Women’s Badminton
- Men’s Football
This is a fantastic achievement for the college, which has reiterated their domination in South East Sport after the pandemic.
Head of Enrichment (Sports Teams) Sam Jones says: 'This is a huge achievement for college sport and our prestigious enrichment department. To have 95 students from such a wide range of sports and genders travelling to the biggest national college competition in the country really shows our commitment to team sport. I can only thank our sports team players and coaches for all their talent and hard work that has made this possible.'
The qualification of the Men’s Football team for the first time ever has encouraged a new sponsorship deal with M D Jones Plumbing and Heating. Our Netball 1st team are also beginning a sponsorship deal with J Skene Roofing.
The event is described as a “mini-Olympics” for colleges. In 2023, the Championships are at Nottingham University from Friday 14th April – Sunday 16th April. Teams will compete against other regions in the hope of winning the prestigious Wilkinson Sword for the South East.
