BUCS Begins!

A new Academic year has begun, and so has the 2017-18 BUCS season. For those of you who are returning to sports teams this year, you'll know that BUCS fixtures are a highlight of being involved in University sport. For those of you who are new to sport at UEA, BUCS (British Universities & Colleges Sport) is a national University league that takes place across all sports. It allows you to visit other Universities to compete and meet a whole range of different people involved in your sport. 

If you'd like to keep up to date on fixtures, you can now see results and what's coming up next on the BUCS website here

The first fixtures of this BUCS season take place today (11th October) and are listed below.

Come down to Blue bar to party with your team and introduce your freshers to sports team life at UEA.
