British universities & Colleges Sport


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 the Basketball Foundation with the development and promotion of the Higher Education Basketball Ambassador (HEBA) programme. This provides valuable experience for student volunteers in basketball whilst increasing the number of participation opportunities on offer to students across the HE sector. More details of this can be found in the Get Involved section.
