What events can Leeds Sport clubs participate in?

Leeds Varsity

Each year, Leeds Gryphons take on local rivals Leeds Beckett in the Leeds Varsity series. The competition culminates in October with the rugby union finale at Headingley Stadium. If your club currently doesn’t compete in Leeds Varsity but would like to, please complete the ‘New Varsity Fixture Request’ document & email this to Beth b.stanfield@leeds.ac.uk .

Christie Championships

The Christie Championships, established in 1886, is an annual sports event held between the Universities of Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester at the end of March. 

Sports Colours Awards

The Sports Colours Awards sees our Leeds Gryphons ditch their tracksuits for the evening to celebrate the outstanding efforts of athletes, teams, volunteers and coaches from our Sports, Martial Arts, Outdoor and Competing Dance Groups each year.

Alumni Sports Day

The annual Alumni Sports Day sees the return of our sporting alumni to Leeds to take on the current students in a day of friendly sporting competition.
