Leiden University College The Hague hosts and wins UCSRN Tournament 2019
Instead of feasting on one of the many Easter meals or enjoying the sun on Scheveningen Beach, a delegation of Leiden University College The Hague students spend last week on the preparations for hosting the UCSRN Sports Tournament. On a sunny Easter Monday, University College students from 8 different Liberal Arts and Sciences - programmes in The Netherlands, came together in Sportcampus Zuiderpark in The Hague to compete each other and themselves.
Mario Kart and FIFA
Although the USCRN Tournament was full of more regular disciplines, the organisation also had the more 'modern' forms of practice included in the competition. Where badminton, basketball, chess, soccer, running (relay and long distance) and hockey where part of the more 'mainstream' sports, e- sports like Mario Kart, 72-hour film project and FIFA were not forgotten.
The UCSRN Sports Tournament takes places every year and this year Leiden University College The Hague had the previlege of hosting this active gathering. In total, 9 Liberal Arts and Sciences programmes joined in the competition and celebration on Easter Monday: Amsterdam University College, University College Utrecht, University College Roosevelt, University College Groningen, University College Twente, University College Maastricht, Erasmus University College, University College Tilburg, and Leiden University College The Hague.

After the dust settled, it became clear that Leiden University College was not only succesfull in hosting the event, but also could take the trophy back home to The Hague. The final ranking brought LUC on first place with a staggering 162 points, followed by Amsterdam University College (159,5) and University College Tilburg (133).
