The College has once again been allocated a limited number of tickets to attend the Varsity Match at Twickenham on Thursday 7 December.

Tickets also grant access to the Varsity Gathering (formerly the Blues Village) – a private bar under the South Stand, with easy access to food outlets and the live music area. The Varsity Gathering will be dressed with College flags, and members can congregate in the Emma area.

The squads are yet to be announced, but we have it on authority that there is a good chance that Emma players will be on both the Men’s and Ladies’ teams.
