Have a go at Rocket League, F1 2020 or compete against others in the Trackmania Time Trial for the chance to win Esports Centre vouchers OR an exclusive coaching session with a seasoned racing game player!

Younger children can have a go at designing their own supercar or strut their stuff to Just Dance in the console area!

Esports for everyone!

Taking place at the Esports Centre, this event is open to first-timers through to seasoned players. There will be experts from the University of Warwick on hand to provide assistance if required. There will also be an accessible gaming kit advised by our charity partner Special Effect, which includes ergonomic joysticks, clip-on accessible buttons, and other features that can be integrated to any game, making it fully accessible to any user.

For those who love to play and compete for long periods of time, there’s a dedicated area for playing games - from Minecraft through to League of Legends. These are payable by the hour.
