Basketball

Welcome to University of Liverpool Basketball club

There are plenty of opportunities to play basketball at the University of Liverpool. We have some great facilities and whether you want to play competitively or socially, you will be able to get involved.

Competitive

We currently have two men's teams and two women's teams competing in the British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) league, all of which are seeking to win their respective leagues or gain promotion. With our Men's first team competing in the Christie Cup and our Women's first team winning the BUCS Northern Conference Cup last season, we are looking to maintain our competitive edge and therefore we would love to see you at trials at the start of the year.

Training times

TeamDayTime
Men's Monday 8pm-10pm
Women's Monday 6pm-8pm
Men's Friday 7pm-8.30pm
Women's Friday 6pm-8.00pm

Social sport

We also hold basketball training and tournaments every Saturday from 3pm-5pm for anyone wishing to play socially. Whether you consider yourself a pro, or you've never picked up a basketball, you're welcome to join in, learn a new skill and make new friends.

Social events

This coming year, we will be having regular club socials with a wide range of activities to become involved in to improve the chemistry of the club. We have lost a lot of time to make up for, so attendance will be heavily encouraged.
