Next Wednesday sees three huge BUCS Championship semi finals as Netball W1, Squash M1 and W1 all battle to wear the Lion at BUCS Big Wednesday!
Netball W1 v University of Bath W1
After their comprehensive win against University of Gloucestershire in the quarters, the W1 now welcome the University of Bath to Sport & Fitness. These two sides met at the same stage last year, with Birmingham blowing away the visitors in the first quarter and eventually running out 60-42 winners. Brum can expect a much tougher test than they had 12 months ago after Bath beat a very strong Manchester Met team in their quarter final. Similar to Intercept, the semi final will be shown on the Sports & Fitness Show court with entry free of charge so make sure you head down on Wednesday to support your Lions!
Squash W1 v University of Manchester W1 and M1 v University of Nottingham M1
Women’s squash have also had a great knockout run having beaten Glasgow and Liverpool at Sport & Fitness. Due to their high seeding the team won’t have to play an away tie this year, as they welcome Manchester on Wednesday. Like any BUCS Championship semi final, it will be a tough game but the team are hoping for lots of support to help cheer them to BUCS Big Wednesday.
The Men sadly don’t have the luxury of getting a home tie, they travel to face a good University of Nottingham team in the hope that they’ll return a fortnight after as Nottingham is again hosting BUCS Big Wednesday.
Make sure you head down to the Sport & Fitness Squash Courts and Munrow Arena to get behind your lions as they try to make it to BUCS Big Wednesday. Both semi finals will be free of charge and for more information on the events you can find the event here.
