Sports Info

The BUCS domestic programme continues to grow with more teams and individuals competing in university sport than ever before. In 2013 team entries in the BUCS leagues increased 8.1% to 4,805 and individual entries up 5000 to 28,011, and this season has seen those numbers grow further.

Representing your university in BUCS competition is a proud moment for any student, and there are 51 sports in which students can do this and earn BUCS points for their university. Some will even be lucky enough to compete in world class venues such as Twickenham Stadium where our Rugby Championship finals are held ever year.

For those who choose individual sports the BUCS Gatorade Nationals are the highlight of the season. The Nationals in their second year in 2014, are the largest annual multi-sport event in the UK attracting almost 6000 athletes to compete for national honours. BUCS Big Wednesday is the culmination of the teams seasons with championship finals in more than 20 sports all being played on one day and in one venue.

We are also working to provide more opportunities for students to play sport, and in 2013 launch LUSL (the London University Sports League) that enabled universities within the London Region to compete locally outside of our national domestic programme.

To find out what opportunities there are within your sport click on 'sport' in the header menu above and choose your sport from those listed.
