The British Universities and Colleges Sport Championship

The British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Water polo Championship final culminates a season stretching from October to March. Throughout the season, teams compete in a league programme, with each league made up of four teams. Institutions either play fixtures on separate dates or combine all fixtures into a round robin tournament on a single day. Each team’s position in the league pyramid determines whether they qualify for the Championship, Trophy or Shield knockout competitions. The Championship semi-finals take place over one weekend with the winners progressing to the Championship Finals weekend which also includes the Trophy and Shield Finals.
