Best of British Student Sports Teams are revealed at Saloufest | Young Academic Student Sports News

Last week Saloufest, known as “the festival for every student”, saw over 8000 British and Irish students swarm to Salou for the biggest university sports tour of the year.  Today Young Academic brings you all the results from the week’s events along with all the relevant information to make sure you’re there next time!

Boasting 22 different sports events in various areas over Salou, Saloufest is said to be “the quality benchmark for your university sports tour experience.”  University sports teams from all over England and Ireland went head to head in Costa Dorada in the hope of winning highly coveted prizes in various different sports.

“Saloufest is a celebration of sport and this year has been no exception, with more students than ever taking part in matches across the region” – Sam Seward

 

The students competed in badminton, basketball, beach cricket, beach flag football, beach rugby, bowling, boxing, cheerleading, dance, hockey, lacrosse, football, martial arts, netball, pool, rugby, rugby league, tennis, ultimate frisbee, volleyball and water polo of which Young Academic can reveal the results below.

Sam Seward, Managing Director of ilovetour.co.uk, said; “Saloufest is a celebration of sport and this year has been no exception, with more students than ever taking part in matches across the region. Some of our universities have been attending Saloufest for ten years; it’s a friendly and fun packed event but make no mistake – rivalry on the pitch can be fierce -British students play to win!”

Taking place from 9 – 15th April or 16th – 22nd April, Saloufest offers a lot more than just competitive sport.  This year the festival saw more entertainment that ever before, including live bands, DJs and a unique student experience for all that participated.

Priced at just £189 for return transport, accommodation and two days of sporting fixtures, it’s no wonder this student sports festival is so popular.  When students aren’t battling for first place, daily pool parties and happy hours are available in the hotel accommodation available within the package.
