DMU Varsity 2019
2019 will be my third varsity now at De Montfort University (DMU).
It is always such an exciting occasion, which brings the two universities in Leicester to compete head to head in sporting events. A week long of competition, determination and passion. Everyone comes out to support their Uni and creates a great atmosphere.
The stand out fixtures are always the rugby and the football. This year men and women’s rugby kicked things off for varsity. The matches which are played at Welford Road, home of Leicester Tigers, is always a real highlight. The players enjoy stepping out into such a famous ground in front of all the fans. The atmosphere is electric and can always guarantee some fantastic crowd shots from this game.
Unfortunately both results didn’t go in DMU’s favour, but both teams gave their best efforts.
After attending the rugby, I had a very busy weekend. Netball, rugby, football and basketball on Saturday and then womens lacrosse on sunday. The weather was fantastic all weekend and it was a great show of sporting abilities. It was my first time shooting basketball and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I definitely want to watch more and hopefully photograph more.
My final event was the equestrian varsity on monday night. This was the 5th year in a row the society has won their varsity. It also topped off an unbeaten season!
Overall the points may not have added up for a win for DMU but it was another great varsity.
I got lots of photos that I am really happy with and I hoe that you enjoy them below!
