NTU Men’s Basketball has three BUCS teams which compete every Wednesday, and three local League teams.
NTU Men's Basketball has unbelievable talent across all teams who pride themselves having consistently won one of the biggest events in Varsity against University of Nottingham over the last 5 years.
Through our partnership with Nottingham Hoods, we have a joint team competing in National League 2. We also enter a 4ths team in a local league competition offering more competitive opportunities for our members.
Training sessions take place at both City campus and Clifton campus. Basketballs are provided and sessions are open to trialists who make the squad or current team players.
Playing sport doesn’t have to mean a big, long-term commitment, we run regular Play for Fun sessions that focus on making sport sociable, inclusive and enjoyable.
There is no requirement to join the club, all sessions must be booked in advance on the NTU Sport App.
