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: Karate


What the club achieved:

The competition squad took a team of nine to the East Midlands Open Karate Championships and walked away with an impressive seventeen medals! Ewan Allwright gave a standout performance, achieving gold in the men’s individual kumite category, and the men’s team also did extremely well, narrowly missing out on gold to Coventry in the final. 
Three members of the club put on a self-defence class too for members of NTU cheerleading to help them feel safer on nights out. 

Off-pitch winner: Athletics


What the club achieved:

NTU Athletics recently decided to take part in the Sheffield Half Marathon in March. They’ll be raising money in the months leading up to the race for Papyrus, a leading charity for prevention of young suicide in the UK. In less than a week, a small group of members have already raised £940! Many more club members are joining in, with the club planning to volunteer at the local Park Run and raise more money for good causes during RAG Week.
