Cambridge Fives Club stars on TV



Cambridge, June 26th 2015

The new Fives courts and club at Cambridge University have been featured in a news report by ITV, and several members of the University Rugby Fives Club performed starring roles.

Led by current captain Jacob Brubert, the four students demonstrated both Eton and Rugby Fives for the cameras. We believe this makes them the first people to be seen playing Fives on TV since Jack Calf was shown playing Rugby Fives in an episode of BBC’s ‘New Tricks’ a few years ago.

You can watch ITV’s film (which was due to be broadcast in the east of the Anglia region on June 26th) and read the accompanying article by clicking on the link below; and, while aficionados of the games may be able to point to several, err, ‘inaccuracies’ in the story, it’s great publicity for Fives, and will surely help to promote the games, both within Cambridge and in the wider area.
