The Women's Basketball club accepts players of all abilities. Whether you're into competing, fitness or just for fun, joining the team is a great opportunity to make new friends, improve your fitness levels and have some fun. We have two teams - first and second, both of which participate in games. Our training sessions are helpful in developing basketball skills, improving fitness levels and developing teamwork skills. We do NOT charge extra fees per training session as this is all covered in the joining fee.
Make sure you find us at the sports fair on the 18th of September to register your interest in the club, to find out more information about trials and to ask us any questions you have about the club
Tryouts are held at the beginning of the season (Tuesday 24th 7-8 pm) at Nancy Astor Sports Hall and all players who sign up are guaranteed a position in either first or second team. Training sessions are held on Tuesdays 6-8 pm at Nancy Astor Sports Hall on campus. The first team participate in BUCS and the second team particpate in the local league games. Whether you're competitive or not, games are always a fun way to improve your skills!
Socials ("nights out") are held every other week alongside the Men's Basketball team on a Wednesday night (most of which will be themed!), however, we do hold occasional 'nights in' for just the girl's team to hangout off-court together. During the first month of University, we will hold extra socials as a way for everyone to settle into the team and get to know each other! Just before the Christmas holidays, a Christmas meal at a restaurant is organised and at the end of the academic year, a final meal out together is organised where we hand out awards within the club. We also went on our first basketball tour to Lloret De Mar in 2016 and hope to continue this every year for all of our members.
