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.

All of our information is regularly relayed through our Facebook page - University of Leeds Women's Basketball 2019/20. Please do not hesitate to join that or contact us through our email address with any queries.

Social Events 

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 our Christmas Otley run, our military mischief and bowling. 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.
