Taking its name from the 15th century Wars of the Roses where York were represented by the white rose the White Rose Varsity Tournament is a sports competition between the two York-based universities in the UK; University of York and York St John University. Started in 2005 by AU-president Stuart Leslie of the University of York and his counterpart from the then York St John College, it is hoped to be continued as an annual event.

Timing[edit]

Set on the Wednesday immediately after BUCS scheduled matches stop (around mid-February), it was intended to be timed well before any exams meaning the most players could take part.

York university also use it as a warm up for their other varsity; the Roses Tournament.
