Prepare yourself for the alternative “nerd” Varsity

If you watch ‘The Big Bang Theory’ you can’t come

Calling all dungeon masters, introverts and Jedi masters, commencing on the 12th of March and running until the 18th there will be an alternative 'sporting' event for those who are more inclined to worlds of fantasy.

The Sci-Fi, Fantasy Society and Anime Society in collaboration with The Harry Potter Society, The Gaming society and The CRIT Society have combined to form one week to rule them all! "NERD" VARSITY.

If physical sporting prowess isn't your thing, or if you just have a passion for Quidditch this is the week for you.

So Pikachoose some of your best mates and take part. Which "nerds" will sit upon the Iron Throne of victory and which will be cast into the fires of Mount Doom?!
