Indoor Inter-Varsity’s 2010 took place in Cork on the weekend of November 20th
This was the first inter-varsity UCC had hosted in a long time, so all players were excited to travel to Cork for an event other than Cork Open.
The Open Division was scheduled to go ahead on the Saturday with sixteen teams competing for the title. The Women’s Division took place on the Sunday with eight teams entering the competition. The sixteen open teams were divided into power pools of four each. Seventh and eighth seeds would play against ninth and tenth in crossovers before placement games began. UCC’s Mardyke Sports Hall saw its first Ultimate varsity held on its grounds. Most Open teams arrived on the Friday evening meeting their hosts at The Star pub near UCC. Other Open teams travelled down Saturday morning, as well as some Women’s teams arriving Friday night to cheer their respective colleges on.
The hall doors opened at 9am Saturday morning as games began not long after. In pool one top seeds and reigning champions UCC won their first three games with ease, scoring thirty two points while only conceding eight. DIT and QUB were the groups whipping boys as they both lost to DCU and UCC. The two drew their game in a close encounter and QUB fell into the crossover via point’s difference.
Pool two saw UCC dominating again, except this time with their second team. Similar to UCC 1,UCC2 amassed a large scoring tally and only conceded single figures. TCD1 were seeded top of this group but could only find enough players to form an iron man team to try and take the trophy home.
