Whether you’re interested in pursuing basketball competitively or socially, we’ve got two opportunities to get involved: our Performance Sport programme and Campus Social Sport.

If you’re a talented basketball player, you can try out for TeamBU Basketball – our community of athletes who represent BU in British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS).

Run in partnership with South Coast Tigers, TeamBU Basketball is made up of four teams (three men's teams and one women's team) who compete both locally and nationally in BUCS leagues and competitions.

If, on the other hand, you are looking to just play basketball socially and for fun, its included in our Campus Sport Programme (alongside badminton, netball, tennis, table tennis, football and volleyball).
