It’s the festive time of the year again! And this December, the Blue Bird will be running its very own Advent Calendar of Sport! Each day we will bring you a cheeky/exciting/interesting/fun fact about Cambridge Sport. Enjoy!

The original Eton Fives court

Eton Fives is a handball sport played by CUEFC as teams of doubles. The court is extremely distinctive as every Eton Fives court in the country must mimic the original court, complete with protruding staircase buttress and step in the middle of the court. Distinct from Rugby Fives, these extra features add an extra element of unpredictability to the game, and add an added challenge for the players. Cambridge is lucky to be the only university in the world with indoor Eton Fives courts, found in the Uni Sports Centre.

Stay tuned for more advent calendar fun on the Blue Bird!
