About BRITISH UNIVERSITIES & COLLEGES SPORT
We deliver more than 50 sports, including everything from archery to ultimate frisbee to almost 170 member institutions (now including some FE Colleges), comprising a busy league programme of over 4800 teams and over 100 championships events every year.
These take place at iconic venues all over the UK, from Twickenham, the home of rugby, to the national watersports centre at Holmpierrepont in Nottingham, to Fistral Beach in Newquay to the Sir Chris Hoy velodrome in Glasgow.
Two new major events have been developed to cope with the unprecedented demand for high level student competition. BUCS Big Wednesday is the culmination of the league season and showcases a large number of our Championship finals in one venue on one day, whilst the BUCS Nationals are the highlight of the season for our individual sport athletes and the UK's largest annual multi-sport event.
We have also launched a new local league structure in London, targeting inter university participation below the BUCS competition structures.
BUCS sport entries continue to grow year on year domestically, and this is supported by a full international programme, where British students can compete for their nation at World University Games and World University Championships, or in a kind of "Champions League" format, their university at European level.
