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.
Leagues and Knockouts for 2020-21
The Basketball league programme will run in Term Two only and there will not be any promotion or relegation between leagues at the end of the season. These decisions were communicated with our members in June.
The format for the programme has been confirmed to members and the 2020-21 leagues and fixtures will be released on Friday 15 January. Fixtures will be scheduled from 17 February, but these will be flexible to individual institutional requirements.
All fixtures will be subject to any institutional, NGB, UK government, devolved administration or local authority rules, regulations and guidance in relation to COVID-19 in place at the time.
