The Varsity Match 2021

The Varsity Match is an annual competition between the karate clubs of Cambridge and Oxford Universities. In the match, which is usually held in February, two men's teams and a women's team from each university compete in kata, team kata and kumite for the three team titles and the overall trophy, the Enoeda Cup.

Competition Report

The much postponed post COVID 2021 annual varsity karate match took place in the Cambridge University Sports Centre on Sunday 3rd October.

Following extensive preparation in the days leading up to the match, CUKC were eager to finally face their opposition.

Cambridge University dominated all three categories and were deservedly awarded the Enoeda Cup for the 15th consecutive year. The overall points were:

Cambridge University 283
Oxford University 23

We were grateful for the support of the referees: Ron Hicks, Ken Hori, Richard Kheder, Herve Vandekerckhove and Lia Howlett and all those who contributed to the event or came to support.
