Sports Awards



The University of Newcastle Sports Awards are an important part of the University's history and reflect the ongoing commitment NUsport has to providing high quality services and facilities. The first University College Blues were presented in 1955, with the Blues Association later forming 4 July 1967, after autonomy. Our history of sporting successes is evident with the number of past students who have achieved Olympic, Commonwealth and World University games honours. The successes of the past continue to inspire those of current and future student athletes.

The Sports Awards presented by NUsport on behalf of the University, recognise outstanding sporting achievements through sporting scholarships, University Blues, University Colours, Sports Club of the Year, Team of the Year and Sports Person of the Year.

A combined awards ceremony will be held in 2021 to acknowledge all recipients as the 2020 presentation was cancelled due to COVID-19.
