Victoria University of Wellington Women’s Futsal team with medals, celebrating winning the 2019 tournament

Tertiary sports tournaments

Our students compete in a range of university sports tournaments across New Zealand.

The University & Tertiary Sport New Zealand Championships see New Zealand’s universities and tertiary institutions go head-to-head. Tournaments are held in a range of sports across the year and trials are open to all Victoria University of Wellington students. We aim to select our top sportspeople and have our strongest teams representing the University.

Points from each tournament accumulate toward an overall tally and champion institution each year. Success at some tournaments can lead to international opportunities.

There are costs associated with travelling and competing in these events and these are communicated to players as soon as possible. Students and teams are encouraged to fundraise.
