If you are interested in joining a diverse, friendly, and active club, look no further than the University of Birmingham Men’s Basketball Club. Whether you are new to basketball or a truly dedicated baller, you’re guaranteed to be able to play basketball leisurely and competitively.
For those interested in playing basketball recreationally, there are a variety of ways to get involved such as a Campus League basketball, weekly social sessions, casual training sessions and more. Those looking for a more competitive experience will have the chance to compete in either the BUCS League or the development squad in one of the three teams.
The Men’s and Women’s Basketball clubs join force for an annual event called Lockdown which takes place in the Munrow Arena in the Sport & Fitness club, taking on rivals from other universities and attracts over 400 spectators.
On top of all the fun you’ll have playing basketball, you’ll enjoy a variety of social events organised by the club; this is the perfect opportunity to play the sport you love while having a great time and making new friends.
How to get involved
To discover more and get involved, come and meet current club members at Sport & Fitness Fair on Tuesday 21 September in the Sport & Fitness Arena from 10am-5pm. This is the best place to find about trials and taster sessions. You will be asked to register your interest using the ‘Register Interest’ form above, and then you will receive confirmation of the dates of trials and taster sessions in a follow-up email. If you would prefer, you can also fill in the form before Sport & Fitness Fair, but you will not receive any further information until the evening of Tuesday 21 September.
If you have any questions for the club before Sport & Fitness Fair, please contact the club directly via the red contact us button or their social media pages.
Following trials and taster sessions, if you would like to join the club you must purchase a membership online. To purchase a membership, please click the yellow join us button.
Please note, on top of the club membership fee there is a £16 fee that covers personal accident insurance when training or competing for the University, access to free cross-training sessions such as circuits and yoga, as well as a contribution to the costs of affiliation to various national governing bodies. This fee is only payable once so if you did decide to join a second club then you would not need to pay a second fee.
