Entry Allowance

Institutions can request an unlimited number of entries, however, should the event reach capacity BUCS may need to restrict the number of entries per institution.

To do this we would prioritise 1st teams for all institutions where possible, followed by 2nd teams where possible and then 3rd teams etc.

This event is capped at 80 teams (mixed gender). If applicable a reserve list will be created.

If you have any questions regarding this allocation, please contact [email protected].
