Riding for Britain

Over the Easter weekend at the beginning of April, I went out to Leuven in Belgium as part of Great Britain’s Student Riders Team. After winning the BUCS Nationals in 2014 and being asked to attend a trials day, I was selected to ride for GB. During Student Riders competitions, you only get five minutes to […]

Men’s Lacrosse Season Review

Previously in BUCS lacrosse leagues, the quality of a team has been based on the amount of US based or experienced players that the team has. Royal Holloway lacrosse team gained no experienced or overseas players this year and the only recruits were players who had barely heard of the sport, let alone picked up […]

THE Team to Watch: RHUL Bears Basketball

We haven’t quite seen a team like this. Promise and potential are on both Men’s and Women’s teams this year, and yet performance has exceeded expectations. Women’s Basketball, in the top division of the BUCS league (1A) of team sports on campus, has kept their record undefeated- not only in BUCS but in the LUSL […]

2015: Playing the Game

Bears find it hard to come back after hibernation… considering the mince pies, Christmas feasts, and New Years Eve extravaganza. Yet amidst the holiday cheer, basketball bears weren’t fooling around; 2015 has hit the ground running for both Men’s and Women’s Basketball. The ladybears started off with their first game of 2015 on the home […]

An Update From Swimming

This year swimming has most definitely been the dark horse of RHUL sport, and it’s only just getting started.

Over first term, competitors partook in the annual BUCS Short Course […]

Women’s Football – Still Walking on Water

Currently undefeated and top of their BUCS league, Women’s Football’s first team faced Portsmouth in the first round of the South Eastern Conference Cup this Bears day, and were keen to maintain their winning streak! There was no question it would be a fast paced game, with right midfielder Alicia Lyne making some impressive runs […]

#BearsDay- Rowing? Paddle-happy winners!

The rowing club, over the last few months, has had a great start to the academic year, and we are all really excited to show our potential at BUCS too. We’ve had a brilliant intake of freshers, and it’s great to see the team spirit continue from last year. We are aiming to maintain the […]

#BearsDay- Triumph for Men’s Football VI: IMPERIAL 5’s 1-2 RHUL

The lads of Royal Holloway football club’s fourth team returned to campus with all three points, winning by two goals to one against Imperial fives. It was a game won thanks to organisation and communication across the pitch. The score line does not reflect the stream of chances that were carelessly squandered. Eventually on the […]
