BUCS points available

Individuals will automatically be entered into the team competitions, provided there are enough eligible individuals from that institution to comprise a team. Please note the following team compositions:
  • Men’s Overall Team – the team placing shall be determined by the highest cumulative score for three surfers from the same institution
  • Women’s Overall Team – the team placing shall be determined by the highest cumulative score for three surfers from the same institution.

Please note that BUCS points will not be allocated where: 

  • The minimum number of competitors has not been reached
  • Where there are not enough individual scores to extract a team score.

An individual/team must have beaten another individual/team to score BUCS points (i.e. if 3 individuals finish an event, only 2 will score BUCS points).

Entry allowance

Institutions can request up to 100 non-guaranteed entries in both the male and female events. However, should the event reach capacity, BUCS may need to restrict the number of entries per institution. Therefore, when submitting entries on BUCS Play, for both the Men’s competition and Women’s competition, surfers should be sorted into your ranked order of preference before being submitted.
