Basketball

About

The Basketball Club consists of the Male and Female 1st team, through tryouts which will take place at the beginning of the academic year. Being part of the Basketball team brings together the competitive spirit with the life of a student at City. It is a great way to share the passion and commitment for basketball and enjoy life at University.

Basketball is not only about our competitive teams, everyone is welcome to play basketball in the social basketball sessions (CityActive Programme) which will take place in a dedicated time slot every week at City Sport! You are not required to play competitively or enter try outs - just come along to CitySport, by yourself or with friends, and join in with everyone else there.

More information can be found on the Trials & Taster Sessions.

The Basketball Club also interacts with charities! In the 2019/2020 season we organized “Basketball to save your balls”, a basketball game against King’s College hosted at City Sport where money got collected for Testicular Cancer Research.

However, in case you are not selected as a player for the team, you can still participate in club-wide activities throughout the academic year. Moreover, we also have off-court club events and team events, such as dinners and movie nights.

Find out more information on the recreational offer.
