Student Sport

The Sports Federation

The Sports Federation is a student-led body that organises Student Sport at the University of Chichester. That includes clubs, competitive sport, recreational opportunities, event hosting, campaigning and much more.

The Sports Federation is administrated by the Sports Development Manager Sid Fletcher and Tom Porter, the Sports Federation President. Both are based above the Bishop Otter Campus Students Union (Zee Bar) along with the other SU Staff and Student Officers, so if you have any queries about Sport from joining /setting up a club to bursaries please come and see us or contact us using the details at the bottom of this page.

Twenty four BUCS teams compete at the highest levels of university sport. There is a bursary scheme in place to support elite individuals in BUCS representative trials/squads and BUCS individual competitions. This scheme is designed to complement the Sports Activity and Research Centre`s Talented Sports Performer Bursary Scheme.

Complementing our BUCS programme are various recreational activities including a 6-aside soccer competition, badminton and an indoor cricket league, together with a wide range of traditional sports clubs and ‘new wave’ activities such as ultimate Frisbee and cheerleading. We also enjoy strong community links with local sports clubs including Chichester Rugby Club, Chichester Priory Park Hockey and Cricket Clubs and Chichester Centurions Hockey Club. There is also an active ‘sporty volunteers’ programme in place.
