The Admiral Sir Harry Rawson Cup, commonly known as the ‘Rawson Cup’, was presented to the Sydney University Sports Union in 1906 and is the height of male intercollegiate sport. The Cup is contested throughout the year by men representing each of the colleges. Points are accumulated by competing in Cricket, Rowing, Swimming, Rugby, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball and Athletics.
St Andrew’s College boasts winning the Rawson Cup more frequently than all the other Colleges combined, including eleven years in a row.
The Rosebowl is the female intercollegiate sporting competition. Similar in design to the Rawson Cup, it is competed for over the year through Rowing, Swimming, Netball, Hockey, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball and Athletics.
St Andrew’s College won the Rosebowl for the first time in 2006, only five years after becoming co-residential.
The University Cup
The University Cup is a sporting competition for the co-residential colleges. The University Cup runs alongside the Rawson Cup and the Rosebowl. It was created to celebrate teamwork of women and men from co-residential colleges in an athletic competition setting, and to promote equality.
The Cup has been a generous gift from St Andrew’s former Vice Principal, John Sergeant, and his wife, Jennifer.
St Andrew’s College also offers a comprehensive social sport program run by the Students’ Club. All students have access to sporting facilities, such as tennis courts, an oval, basketball courts and a gymnasium.
