Bedfordshire Bulls is the name for all of the competitive sports teams that represent the University of Bedfordshire, ran by the Students’ Union.


Established in 2012, we have over 40 teams and over 500 students competing in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) Leagues, as well as other national competitions and leagues.

 

Wanting to join the Bedfordshire Bulls?

Some clubs require you to go through a trial to get onto the team, but most clubs offer opportunities to attend taster sessions during Welcome Week and join regardless of whether you have played before or not. This offers you the chance to give a brand new sport a go before committing to it for the upcoming year. You will find out more about each club by looking on their page, and in September you can speak to the current members of any club at the Freshers Fair on Luton and Bedford campuses. Clubs also have a Twitter account and Facebook pages which can be found on the club's page, or by speaking to someone in the Students’ Union on your campus.

The 2017/18 season will see the Bulls do battle again against their Midlands rivals across a whole range of sports. There will be plenty of games taking place on Wednesdays and Sundays, so even if you’re not playing, come and support your friends and see the Bulls in action.

 

 

Each year, the Bedfordshire Bulls host a range of events from awards evenings to an annual Varsity competition against the University of Hertfordshire in March. There are also several events organised by the clubs themselves, including UV Volleyball or Mixed Netball tournaments.

 

Bedfordshire Bulls Membership

All sports clubs are run by student committees who are voted on each year to lead the team by the club. When you pay your Club Subscription Fee (Club Subs), this is your investment into the club you are now a part of, and is used to develop the club in whatever way you, your committee and the rest of your teammates think is best:

  • new training equipment,
  • qualified coaches to manage your team,
  • social trips to theme parks or events such as Team Meals, or
  • branded team ‘stash’.

 

Before you purchase your Club Subs, you first need to pay for a Sports Membership fee. This payment contributes to the following areas of your sporting life:

  • essential equipment to host a home fixture or competition,
  • facility hire for training and competitive fixtures,
  • affiliation fees and entry fees to your sports’ governing body or competition entries,
  • transport to and from away fixtures or competitions,
  • accommodation for weekend competitions if required, and
  • most importantly, insurance cover.

 

You can pay your Sports Membership Fee and your Club Subs in a variety of ways:

  • Using your debit card here on the SU website, or
  • Using your My Beds Money Card/Cash in one of the Students’ Union offices on your campus.
