at the University of Bath for the second time.
The BCS National Championships covers 14 disciplines of which 10

Netball taking place off campus. The Golf competition was

The event will commence with our Opening Ceremony where students

the students will compete in their chosen disciplines by competing
against the best competitors from each of the 11 BCS regions.

be updating the results from all 45 events directly on to our
website, so even if you are not attending you will be able to view
the results and see the latest news on our Twitter or Facebook pages.
