National Wine Centre, Hackney Road
The Blues is an important element to AU Sport as it allows AU Sport Clubs and the University community to unite together and celebrate the sporting and volunteering achievements of our members at our gala event at the end of the year.
The history of the Blue began in 1836 following a boat race between Oxford and Cambridge universities, first as a blue ribbon tied to the bow of the Cambridge boat and later as the colour of the stripes worn by the Oxford crew. Over time, any student who represented Oxford against Cambridge was entitled to wear a dark blue jacket. Eventually, Blues were awarded for outstanding achievement in university sport – a tradition adopted at universities in many parts of the world. Over 4,000 recipients have been awarded a University of Adelaide Blue, Half Blue or Club Letters. Formerly a jacket, today the Blues Award is presented as a certificate and a suitably engraved pin.
The night is also a great opportunity to reflect on the year that was and celebrates a number of the University's sporting highlights which have been achieved over the last 12 months. Who will win: 'Volunteer of the Year', 'Coach of the Year', 'Patron's Cup' and 'Club of the Year'?
We encourage awardees, AU Sport clubs, family and friends to come along and celebrate a fantastic year of achievements and highlights.
