Selected VUT Tennis players: Mahao Matete and Nthabiseng Nqosa
Congratulations to Mahao Matete and Nthabiseng Nqosa for their selection into the USSA (University Sports South Africa) national team to take part at the World University Championships (WUC) in September 2018. The host country has not been announced yet.
The WUC are part of the sporting events of the International University Sports Federation. Alternating with the summer and winter Universiades, they are organised every even-numbered year. The first FISU World University Championship was organised in the city of Lund (Sweden) in 1963.
The WUC are single sports events, the organisation of which is delegated to a National University Sports Federation (NUSF) and then to a city and an organising committee. Organising a WUC gives a city, and often a university, a chance to host an international sporting event without being a big or rich city.
