Entries for this competition are capped. Each category is limited to eight competitors. A maximum of one entry per institution per category will be accepted. Two non-guaranteed places (reserves) from each institution can be named in each category. Please rank on BUCS Play your preference for each category. 

Where possible we will run a category B and a category C championship in categories that are oversubscribed to ensure all reserves have the opportunity to box in the tournament. There will be no points awarded in these categories but will provide an opportunity for reserve boxers to compete in the competition should there be an appropriate opponent.

If the categories are oversubscribed BUCS will accept entries based on bouts won / lost ratio as recorded on the competitor's card. Reserves will only be charged an entry fee if they are accepted into the competition. Late entries will not be accepted.

No entries will be accepted on the day.
