The basketball programme runs throughout the university year, with fixtures held every Wednesday. This also has a knockout competition, where teams can progress through to the Cup stages and Championship and Trophy division winners are decided at BUCS Big Wednesday.
The winning team of BUCS Big Wednesday can take their basketball skills to the next level and compete against the best at the European University Competitions.
For London-based students, the London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL) also offers more flexible and social league and knockout competitions for men’s and women’s teams.
