Teams traditionally play matches every Wednesday in leagues of 6 with promotion and relegation across all leagues. Leagues are based regionally at the lower levels, becoming more national as teams progress up the pyramid. All teams participate in a knockout cup dependent on their league position (Championship, Trophy, Conference Cup). The Championship knockouts culminate in the Final 8s with the winners progressing to the final at BUCS Big Wednesday. LUSL also run a league and cup competition for men and women.
BUCS is also supporting England Basketball to promote the online survey ‘You are Basketball’. This survey aims to support the growth of the game by developing an understanding of players habits and motivations, with the added incentive of the opportunity to win a trip to meet British NBA Star Luol Deng and see him in action during the 2014-15 NBA season.
