BUCS Weekly Update – Week 19

08 February 2012

Sports People of Bath, whilst most of you have been focusing on and/or celebrating the end of exams then off enjoying yourselves a little too much on one of the SA clubs ISB trips, there were a few hearty souls still battling the cold to compete for the University in BUCS fixtures over the last few weeks.

In their first season since formation they have only lost one match and will no doubt be looking forward to the greater challenges that await them in the knockouts.

The Netball women’s 1st team also maintained their fine form with victories over UWIC in the league and Manchester in the cup, with many in the team juggling the demands of the new Netball Superleague season with BUCS fixtures.

Tennis, News, Events, Features, & ReportsDespite this, the exam period saw Bath drop down to fourth in the overall BUCS standings, only three points behind third place Leeds Met. This is in part due to suspended cup fixtures. If we win the re-arranged fixtures, we will rise up the table again to the lofty position you deserve. Still, it looks set to be tight and it may well come down to one magic moment to secure us third place come the end of the season!

The Match of the Week is a Tennis double header in the fantastic Sports Training Village indoor tennis facility, taking place at 12:30 pm. Both the Mens and Womens 1’s will be taking on London Met.

Currently both teams top their respective Premier League tables and victory will edge them even closer to the title.

This Saturday 11 February we have a Dodgeball tournament in the Founders Hall 5pm-8pm with hall points up for grabs.

Also, all this week we will have the 3:Thirty club ambassadors round campus with the 3:Thirty club banner.

If you get your picture taken with the banner and tag yourself on the 3:Thirty club Facebook page you could win four free Score tickets for next week!

So for this weeks quote of the week, given the Dodgeball tournament this weekend, and that I love both the film and Lance Armstrong, I just couldn’t resist:

Chris Clements - VP Sport“Quit? You know, once I was thinking about quitting when I was diagnosed with brain, lung and testicular cancer, all at the same time. But with the love and support of my friends and family, I got back on the bike and I won the Tour de France five times in a row. But I’m sure you have a good reason to quit. So what are you dying from that’s keeping you from the finals?”
