Basketball is a key performance sport at the University. Fast-paced and intense, the club is looking to attract players that will enhance their squads. Training is competitive but enjoyable, aimed at pushing those that participate to the best of their capabilities. The women’s side were named the University’s Team of the Year in 2015-16, having gained promotion to the Premier South, whilst the men’s first team were also league winners last season.
The Basketball Club compete in the National University League and Cup programmes managed by BUCS:
Men’s 1st - South Eastern Tier 1A and Trophy Men’s 2nd - South Eastern Tier 4B and Conference Cup Women’s 1st - Premier South and Championship
Trials and taster sessions will begin during the first week of term after fresher's week.
You must pre-register to attend these at either the Athletic Union Sports Fair or the SU Fresher’s Fair where you will be given further information.
All members must have signed up to the Club before their first fixture, whichever comes first.
Both the mens and womens teams are coached by highly experienced and qualified basketball coaches.
The women's coach, Mike, was the winner of the Athletic Union's Coach of the Year award at the 2015/16 Sports Awards.
