On Wednesday 10th May 2017, round two of the #BUvSolent took place across Bournemouth. The event saw 25 sports teams battle it out in sunshine which ended in a BU win 14-11. Bournemouth Sports Club hosted the main festival site which saw 2,000 people enjoying the day and cheering on their sides.

SportBU teamed up with SUBU to put together a preview video (above) showing our teams preparing for the day, as well as created a powerful photo album available on our Facebook page.

Event organiser Michael Barry, Performance Sport Manager at BU said:

“The event is a brilliant showcase of sport from two successful universities. The planning process for such a large scale event was a great challenge but with all the support from staff, student athletes and service providers the event was a great success. The BU sides did themselves proud to bring home the win and everyone seemed to really enjoy the day, bring on 2018!”
