British universities & Colleges Sport


Handball is currently not in the BUCS domestics competition calendar. However, it is part of the London University Sports League (LUSL) and there are opportunities to get involved in external competitions and recreational programmes. 

The BUCS Development Team works in partnership with The Home Nation Sport Councils and with key Handball partners and stakeholders in the HE sector. The aim is to provide students and members with development support and access to coaching, workforce and volunteering opportunities, participation programmes, NGB interventions and offers, disability sport initiatives plus funding and bursary opportunities. Information on current interventions and opportunities can be found under the 'Get Involved' tab to the left hand side of this page.
