We are all looking forward to an exciting new year ahead with plenty of amazing socials lined up for our 2019-2020 squads.  We provide a variety of opportunities to take part through swimming, waterpolo or socially and welcome students of all abilities to come and join. As a committee we believe your experience as part of our Bears team will help enrich your whole university experience and help you to make life-long friendships.

Our Swim Team competes twice a year in the BUCS league, in First Term we swim in the Short-Course BUCS Championships and in Second Term we compete in the Long-Course BUCS Championships. These take place over a weekend so we get to have a few nights away and some great socials while there too!

Our Waterpolo teams are competing in a tournament this year. This means there are matches regularly throughout the year against other Universities competing in the league.

We will also offer you the chance to buy new kit in the coming year. To view our BUCS page; http://www.bucs.org.uk/homepage.asp
