Sporting Success

Selwyn has had notable success on the badminton courts and on the river this March.

Our women’s badminton team won Cuppers: the competition between all the Cambridge colleges. They beat Murray Edwards 3-0 in the final. The college has a strong reputation in the sport: this is the third year in a row that we’ve made the final, but the first victory.

The winning team is pictured – left to right Diya Rajan, Amy Chen, Emma Collins, Maria Chukanova, Aeisha Johnson and Nique Clare Oh.


It was also a strong week for Selwyn’s boat club in the Lent Bumps. Our first men’s crew won their blades after four successful bumps in four races; and our first women’s crew bumped up three times to record their best performance for some years. M1 have moved up from 8th to 4th in the 2nd division, and the M2 boat improved by one place. Our photos show M1 after their triumph, and a garlanded W1 on the Cam.
