First semester has come to a close and needless to say it’s been a fantastic few months for sport at the University of Bath!

Our BUCS campaign thus far has been largely successful, with the University lying in 6th place in the BUCS standings heading into semester two.

University of Bath Badminton Club have been particularly impressive, leading the way in points currently contributed to the University’s total BUCS score. Both the men’s first and second teams, and the women’s first and second teams lie top of their respective leagues – all with 100% winning records.
