Basketball (W)

What we’re all about

LUU Women's Basketball promote teamwork, friendship, passion, development and laughter for players who've been playing basketball for 15 years or 15 minutes. We offer plenty of opportunities for new players to learn the ropes, develop their skills and compete in our team. We also have exciting and vibrant socials, often with the men's team.

Training

Mondays: 4pm-5pm, The Edge, Sports Hall 1B

Thursdays: 6pm-7pm, The Edge, Sports Hall 1B

Weekly Personal Training sessions available to the 1st team as part of club membership.

Socials

Wednesday nights go OFF for Women's Basketball. After a hard day balling we hit the Leeds night life dressed in outrageous outfits. Our highlights of the last year were the lavish Leeds Sports Ball, totally outrageous Tour and Hawaiian pizza socials. We love our members to take part in the social side of our society as it is a great way for the team to bond and also to make a great group of supportive and encouraging friends. 

Competing 

LUU Women's Basketball 1st team compete in BUCS Basketball Northern League 1a against Leeds Beckett University, Northumbria University, Sheffield Hallam , Manchester Met  and Durham University. 

We also compete in BUCS Basketball Northern Conference Cup. 

Our games take place on Wednesdays at The Edge or away and we encourage any members of the University of Leeds community to come and support!
