Join us for the BUCS Boxing Championships 2022-23
The University of Portsmouth Department of Sport and Recreation is proud to be the host of the 2022-23 BUCS Boxing Championships from Friday 27 January- Sunday 29 January. We are delighted to be hosting this national event in our very own state of the are sports facility, Ravelin Sports Centre.
What is BUCS?
British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) is the national governing body of university sport in the UK. Over 165 universities and colleges in the UK, 6,000 teams are members of BUCS and they compete across 850 leagues. Universities can accumulate BUCS points for winning or drawing in fixtures, these points then allow universities to be ranked on a league table. Last year, the University of Portsmouth was ranked 36th, this year we are currently sitting at 38th.
This is a national event that will see student boxers from all different universities across the country come together and compete against each other. Over 200 boxers applied to compete at this year's championships. There are a range of different categories. If a category is oversubscribed, the top boxers 1 – 8 will compete in the BUCS Championship for BUCS points and medals. The next eight boxers 9 – 16 will be invited to take part in a class B category, which does not offer any BUCS points or medals.
