National Championships LogoFrom Friday 30th March to the 1st April 2012 BCS will be hosting its 34th National Championships which is being held at the University of Bath for the second time.  

The BCS National Championships covers 14 disciplines of which 10 will be held at Bath University with only Badminton, Football and Netball taking place off campus.  The Golf competition was held earlier this month at the National Golf Centre Woodhall.  

The event will commence with our Opening Ceremony where students will hear from Guest Speakers such as Rachel Smith who will talk about her Guinness World Record in Atlantic Ocean Rowing, as well as being able to view several sports displays. Over the next 2 days the students will compete in their chosen disciplines by competing against the best competitors from each of the 11 BCS regions.

During the Championship weekend BCS will for the first year ever 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.

Simone Rooks, BCS Events Officer commented "BCS are pleased to have been able to secure The University of Bath for a second year for our annual National Championships which is now in its 34th year.  We are expecting in the region of 2500 players and staff who we believe will experience a fantastic 3 days of high level sport"
