About Us

Our first team competes in the British Universities & Colleges Sport (BUCS) League every Wednesday. The Basketball Club has made appreciable progress over the years. In the academic year of 2013-2014, the club got promoted to division 1 (Northern 1A) and in the academic year 2014-2015, we secured third place within our league with a negligible difference in the point margin. Since then we have held our position in Division 1 and are looking to be promoted to the topmost division this year.

As a club, we look forward to welcoming players of all abilities and have a dedicated training session to develop core basketball skills for beginners. Especially since a few of our players from the first team have graduated and left us, there’s plenty of opportunity for new players.

Also, we have exciting socials after every game on Wednesday nights, many of which are with the Men’s Basketball team. Our Social Secretaries are constantly coming up with fantastic ideas right from dressed up Christmas dinners to fun nights at the local clubs.

Joining our club will be one of the best decisions you will ever make. With loads to do. Friends for life and unforgettable memories, we will help make your university experience count.
