The BUCS Beach Volleyball Championship, delivered by Volleyball England is the largest student beach volleyball event in the country with over 200 students taking part across the weekend. This year's event will be held on the beach of Sandbanks, Bournemouth on the weekend of the 3rd - 4th June 2017.

Rules and Format

The competition will be run under Volleyball England and FIVB regulations.

Men’s and Women’s Pairs

Each institution will be limited to 1 Guaranteed Male and 1 Guaranteed Female pair. However an additional 3 Non-Guaranteed pairs may also be entered on BUCScore. Acceptance of Non-Guaranteed pairs will be dependent on the total number of entries received, and these entries will be allocated based on ranking until the competition reaches capacity. Accepted entries will be confirmed on Thursday 13th April 2017 and published on the BUCS Beach Volleyball Championships event page and circulated via BUCS Essentials.
Institutions will be required to nominate 2 players for each pair they enter. Institutions should rank their pairs on BUCScore. An institution’s Guaranteed entry should be their number 1 ranked pair for that event, with any Non-Guaranteed entries ranked accordingly from 2 down at the point of entry.

*Please note, only one pair per Institution will be permitted in the Championship competition, but there may be multiple pairs allocated to the Trophy and/or Shield competitions. Similarly, not all 1st teams will necessarily be allocated to the Championship.

Mixed Fours

Any institutions wishing to compete in the Mixed Fours must enter via BUCScore at the same time as entering the Men’s and Women’s Pairs competitions – no entries will be accepted after Thursday 6th April 2017. Please note that this event does not carry any BUCS Points and will run alongside the Pairs competitions. Mixed Fours Team may contain competitors from the Pairs competitions, new competitors not competing in the Pairs, or a mixture.
Each institution will be able to enter up to 4 Non-Guaranteed Mixed Fours teams on BUCScore. Acceptance of fours entries will be dependent on the total number of entries received for both the Pairs and the Mixed Fours. Institutions should rank their Mixed Fours entries on BUCScore, although detailed information is not required for these entries. These entries will be allocated based on ranking until the competition reaches capacity. Accepted entries will be confirmed on Thursday 13th April 2017 and published on the BUCS website Beach Volleyball Championships event page and circulated via BUCS Essentials.
