The University of Nottingham is celebrating a summer of successes as it prepares to welcome students for the new academic year. For the next few weeks we’ll be profiling a daily story that put Nottingham in the news.

We’ve got BUCS Big Wednesday for 2018

With the University’s strong reputation for sport, and having reached a record number of finals at last year’s competition, we’re delighted that BUCS Big Wednesday is coming to Nottingham.

The newly developed £40m David Ross Sports Village and other venues across the City will play host to hundreds of participants from top university teams as they compete in one of the biggest sporting events in the University calendar.

Dan Tilley, the Director of Physical Recreation and Sport at the University of Nottingham, said: “It’s an honour to be hosting BUCS Big Wednesday in 2018 and we’re incredibly excited to welcome BUCS and all the competitors here to Nottingham.”

Mark Brian, BUCS Head of Sport, added: ‘”We are delighted to be going to Nottingham for BUCS Big Wednesday in 2018. Their world class facilities will ensure the event continues to display the highest quality university sport.”
