What is BUCS Tennis?

BUCS stands for British Universities & Colleges Sport. Tennis clubs from universities across the UK compete in national BUCS leagues, including Cardiff Uni. Each match consists of two doubles and four singles rubbers.


Cardiff Men’s 1st team were dominant on the day, winning five out of the six rubbers.

Abdullah Al Barwani and Dominic Pearson from Cardiff Uni won their doubles rubber after winning two sets by 7 points to 6. On the next court, Tom Davenport and Aydin Caglayan also won their doubles rubber, winning two sets 6-4 and 6-2 respectively.

In the singles, Davenport, Caglayan and Pearson won each of their singles rubbers, however Al Barwani lost by two sets to deny the team a perfect afternoon against UCL.
