Welcome to The University of Bath Basketball Club

What We Do

We play ball! Whether you are a new or returning student, the Basketball Club will have something to offer, from weekly social events to countless opportunities to play basketball. Become part of our community, we cannot wait to meet you! 

Pre-season Training 2021

This year, we will be hosting pre-season for both our men's and women's BUCS squads during September. This will consist of a mixture of fitness sessions as well as skill and tactical sessions. If you are an incoming or current student interested in participating in pre-season training, do not hesitate to contact us via email, su-basketball@bath.ac.uk.   

BUCS Teams

If you are interested in high-level, competitive basketball, we have three teams competing in the BUCS league this year; men's 1st, men's 2nd, and women's 1st.

The women's 1st team will also be competing in Western Division 2.

Trials for all teams will take place in the week following Freshers' week so make sure you check us out on Facebook and Instagram for more information!

Development League

Development League (D-League) is a great chance to play fun competitive games with your friends every week. On top of the fun element, this will give anyone who doesn't make it through trials to play alongside squad players and show what they can do; our squads are never set and if you show us we made a mistake in trials then you just might get to don the blue and yellow shirt in a BUCS game! 

Recreational

If you are looking to play some pickup, we have that too! Whether you have some experience, or have never picked up a basketball before, come and join us a one of our inclusive sessions. Led by some of our BUCS players, you will be learning from the best in Bath!

Socials

Want to just hang out? We have you sorted. We have organised socials taking place every Wednesday, events, weekly challenges, and a freshers week tournament! It is a great way to make friends and become part of a fantastic community.

So come along and check us out. I promise you will not regret it!!!
