Entries should now be open through BUCSscore - you CANNOT enter through UKU. You must get the staff at your Athletic Union to enter through the official BUCS site. Entries will close on the 23rd February - get on it ASAP! Note that already this year some teams have been refused a late entry by BUCS - please do try to enter on time!

 

All Women's teams must enter in order to qualify for BUCS Nationals. We expect to run both a Division 1 and a Division 2 at Nationals, so the large majority of teams should be able to attend, but you must attend regionals in order to be eligible for Nationals. Regionals is a required part of the BUCS season, and teams must qualify through it for the National event in April.

 

If the tournament is oversubscribed the entry procedures will be as described below.

UKU/BUCS Entry Rules

BUCS Regionals

The closing date and payment date will be as announced by BUCS. If places remain open after that date, they MAY be filled on a first-pay first-play basis. UKU/BUCS reserve the right to refuse a late entry if it will compromise the tournament for others – for example by adversely affecting the schedule – and to place the team on a waiting list instead.

 

For tournaments that are over-subscribed at the closing date the following rules will apply, in order:

·         First teams will get priority over second teams, and second over third etc.

·         If there is insufficient room for all first teams, places will be awarded in the following order:

o   First teams finishing in the top half of the previous year’s tournament

o   First teams who didn’t enter the previous year’s tournament

o   Remaining first teams in order of their finishing position last year

·         If there are spaces remaining after all first teams have been awarded a space, second teams will be offered places in an order based on finishing position last year, and then third teams and so on

o   Second teams with no finishing position from last year will have a lower priority than those who attended – but still above all third teams (and so on)

If the cut-off happens to fall between 2 or more teams with no finishing position from last year, a lottery will be run between those teams to determine entry.

 

Which region are we in?

Please note that your region is not necessarily related to where your Men's team plays in the outdoor leagues. We have 7 indoor regions (combined into 4 larger regions for Women's Indoors and Outdoors), which do not tally with the 5 outdoor Men's regions. Check carefully!

This list should now contain all the Unis - if your team is missing please do let us know and we'll update it!
