York Games is a new event coming this year for students at the University of YORK! It is a two day tournament, to be hosted over the second weekend of November by York Sport Union.

Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of November 2019 - York Games are being run to get clubs and groups of friends to compete in a range of team-based fitness events. While it is a competition, the event has been created to bring together the York student community! The weekend will consist of a series of activities and sports that students will compete in across the two days. Each activity will be scored in order to determine a winner, and figure out who is the Super Team in York!.

The York Games event is for mixed teams only. You can buy your team’s entry and pick and choose participants up until two days before the event, where you will need to give us the names of the individuals entering.

York Games is open to anybody to compete in - given you find a team of 10 people.

You’ll be able to buy entry here from Friday 11th October. We anticipate that tickets and entries will sell out fast so please be quick and don’t miss out!


Term 1, Week 6 - Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November 2019.


Teams must consist of 10 members and must be of mixed gender. For example 5 men and 5 women or 7 men and 3 women or 7 women and 3 men. The number needs to be at least 3 members of a gender and a team needs to be made of 2 or more genders.
