Basketball is one of the biggest sports on campus, and the city of Leicester itself. With a national level team sitting in the heart of the city, basketball is a key part of the city's culture. The University has a strong relationship with its sport especially basketball. We are a strong and tightly knit club with a great ethos and relationship between its members. Becoming part of the club is a great chance for you to meet new friends and socialise and of course play the sport we all love!!
This year promises to be one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory with plans to: host tournaments throughout the year, hold exciting socials that do not revolve around alcohol (but don’t worry, alcohol will be present…) and of course, participate in competitive Basketball against other universities. We have 3 Men's teams and 1 Women's team all competing across in the midlands in a range of BUCS leagues.
We also plan to run an intramural league, which will run over the year. You can sign up with some friends and form a team and play other teams within the league. This is brilliant way to get active, try a new sport and get involved in club and the university.
The best part of this club is that there is something for everyone; whether you are brand new to the sport or consider yourself the next MJ. Join our page today and discover all the brilliant things that the University of Leicester Basketball Club has to offer!
