MEN’S & WOMEN’S BUCS LEAGUES 2019-20

If you haven’t entered yet, this is a reminder that the deadline for you to get your teams submitted into next season’s BUCS leagues is next Friday - 10th May! You need to enter via your AU so make sure that if you’re interested in taking part that you get your entry in now before it’s too late. 

 

Not sure what’s happening next year? 

In addition to the Men’s Wednesday afternoon league that has been taking place since 2015, there will now be a NEW Women’s central-venue league. 

 

How will the Women’s BUCS league work? 

There will be 2 one-day fixtures that will take place for each region (with the regions being the same as those used for the Men’s league). The plan is that teams will play 2 or 3 games at each of the one-day fixtures, due to be held on Saturday 9th November 2019 and Saturday 22nd February 2020.
