VC's Cup

The Vice-Chancellor's inter-departmental staff tournament

Get involved

The Vice-Chancellor's Cup (VC's Cup) is an inter-departmental tournament for all University of Kent staff. From November 2023 to September 2024 staff departments across the University compete in a series of activities! All departments and abilities are welcome. 

To take part in the VC Cup, you must have a FREE Kent Sport Pay to Play membership: please sign up on the Kent Sport memberships page.

Departmental teams are encouraged to participate in each event. The events are typically around one hour long and mostly take place during lunch hours.

If you would like to participate in the VC's Cup for 2023/24, please check out our participating teams and get in touch with the relevant team captain. 


As we kick off this sporting extravaganza, remember that participating isn’t just about winning; it’s embracing the benefits of physical activity not only for your health but also your mental health.
