For those interested in Esports, the society organises online leagues and LAN tournaments so that members can pit themselves against other gamers both in and out of the university
Members can form into teams to play against other universities in the National University Esports League (NUEL)SVGE also hosting large scale casual and competitive LAN tournaments with rival universities as part of Esports and gaming Varsity events as well as for charity based events.
