Eligibility of Individuals

Individuals are eligible to compete for their clubs at BUTC, if and only if they are also eligible for BUCS championships in the same academic year. They must also be ArcheryGB affiliated.

It has always been the intention of the founders of this tournament, and remains the view of UKSAA, that one of the primary purposes of BUTC is to offer students at British Universities a chance to experience the format and pressures of events that are commonly run only at the highest level.

Institutions have asked whether non-students who are members of their clubs (by virtue of life membership of University unions, associate memberships or similar) can also participate in BUTC teams. We have taken the decision that this should not be permitted, as it is not in keeping with the founding principles of the tournament, and would also introduce a potentially unfair advantage for those clubs with, for example, strong alumni or associate memberships. There is no reason why such individuals should not serve as team managers, but they may not compete.
