rugbyInter-University sports championships have been organized from the latter part of the 1950s. The first University Sports Festival was held in 1980 at the University of Peradeniya in response to a suggestion made by the Director of Physical Education of the University of Peradeniya, Mr. Lesley Handunge,a graduate of the University of Peradeniya himself, was a skilled sportsman who had represented Sri Lanka twice in boxing at the Olympic Games. Furthermore, as he had led the Sri Lankan team at the World University Sports Festival and at a number of other international sports festivals. Mr. Handunge was able to organize the festival among universities in keeping with the standards and traditions of the Olympic Games. Thus, following this tradition, the Sri Lankan universities organize a festival once in three years and the University of Moratuwa organizes XI Sri Lanka University Games in 2013.
