Intramural Sport

Following interrupted years, sport was back with a bang at TeamUCL. Our sports clubs achieved some amazing things over the course of the season with record performances at regional and National level. Last season alone we competed in over 1000 fixtures and 42 events in both British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) and London Universities Sport League (LUSL). The 21-22 season will also be marked as one of our most successful seasons ever, with 5 teams reaching National Trophy Finals, 7 teams reaching Regional Cup Finals, 7 teams reaching LUSL finals, and a wealth of medals from our BUCS events.
