The Roses Tournament is an annual sporting competition between Lancaster University and the University of York.
It’s organised by our very own Lancaster University Students’ Union (LUSU) and York’s Student Union, known as YUSU.
It takes its name from the 15th Century civil war, The Wars of the Roses, between the House of Lancaster and the House of York. The competition is held every summer, alternating its venue between the two universities.
