What is Club of the Week?


Each week the Students’ Union recognises the achievements of NTU’s sports clubs by awarding two Club of the Week awards – one for an on-pitch sport and one for off-pitch.

Both clubs win £50 to put towards their club as well as a featured space on the NTSU website.


This week’s winners:


On-pitch winner: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


What the club achieved:

The NTU BJJ squad travelled to Warwick to compete in the UK Universities National Championship this week. They won the overall competition with a win rate of 62%  - a huge achievement considering the amount of new members gained this year. They also won without a head coach in place meaning it was up to the committee alone to share knowledge and push the team.


Off-pitch winner: Climbing and Mountaineering


What the club achieved:

Throughout the term NTU Climbing have been taking weekly donations on behalf of 4Ocean, a charity which aims to cleans oceans and coastlines. This week they donated £258.95 which will lead to 15lbs of plastic waste being removed from the world coasts. They’ve also committed to buying biodegradable glitter for their fancy-dress themes to reduce the impact regular glitter has on the environment.
