Women’s Basketball

The UoB Women’s Basketball Club is a highly unified club which has delivered incredible results, both in the BUCS competition sphere and in the promotion of Women’s Basketball around the University. In the 2016-2017 academic year both of the Women’s BUCS teams remained undefeated in their leagues, leading to a double league promotion for the upcoming season. Similarly the Women’s 3rd team continues to develop and compete in the West Midlands Women’s Basketball League. Other admirable results include winning the 2014 BUCS National Trophy. Aside from the BUCS leagues, UoB Basketball hold a yearly varsity competition called Lockdown. The event has been a sellout in the past and is supported by both the UoB Cheerleading team and the UoB Dance Squad.

Aside from the competitive aspect of the sport, the club is extremely social and holds weekly socials. These socials allow players from all three teams to get to know one another and will be sure to change your university experience. Many of our players at UoB Women’s Basketball are first time basketball players, who have not played the sport before. As well as having a focused and driven competitive nature, our club is also highly invested in promoting Women’s Basketball as a sport and allowing beginners to experience the sport.
