The EUSA Games governed by the European University Sports Association (EUSA) represents the largest European multi-sport student event. The delegation comprised of 251 people containing 199 athletes across 51 universities in 13 sporting disciplines is also the highest number of universities represented within a single British delegation ever.
The competition will be hosted in Lodz, the third-biggest city in Poland between the 17 July 2022 to 31 July 2022. The event is set to be the biggest university sporting event organised in Poland since the Winter Universiade in 2001.
In collaboration with British Para Table Tennis, the delegation will also include Shae Thakker (University of Sheffield), Joseph Crouse (Imperial College) and Ryan Henry (University of West Scotland) who will become the first ever British Para-Athletes to compete at the EUSA Games.
International Performance Manager, Marc Forrest said “It is a significant milestone within the international university programme. The delegation highlights the depth of quality and talent across our membership to be showcased on the European stage. A huge thank you must go to all our university leads, associated NGBs, Mariano from EUSA and Mirinda for their significant contribution”.
As a biannual event, the Hungarian cities of Debrecen and Miskolc will host the next European Universities Games in 2024. Salerno in Italy will host the 2026 European Universities Games.
