Project Description

BUCS LUSL Taekwondo

BUCS London Universities Sports League

The British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) London Universities Sport League (LUSL) was created to offer competitive sports exclusively to university and college students in London.

LUSL was launched in 2012 in line with the BUCS mission to enhance the student experience through sport, by providing opportunities for more students to partake in quality sport, more often.

The BSTF organise LUSL taekwondo tournaments on behalf of BUCS, with the events often delivered in parallel with another university Championships Series event where that is hosted in London, in order to minimise additional travel and maximise the opportunities available at the events. LUSL competition is a fantastic opportunity for London universities with their close proximity, offering more competitions more often to their members. Universities may in some cases subsidise the entry costs to LUSL events for their members, making them even more accessible for students new to the sport. You can find more information about BUCS LUSL events on the BUCS website and please visit our events calendar for the latest event dates and venues.

LUSL rules and divisions

LUSL taekwondo competition is delivered in the WT rules sparring discipline for A, B and C class competitors and with full Olympic weight divisions.
