Basketball is open to all Northumbria University students at any level of experience. Our Basketball club boast a friendly, diverse and active environment with the desire to keep their outstanding reputation within BUCS & the university.

Basketball is another one of our biggest clubs at Northumbria with 4 teams (2x Men & 2x Women) entered to compete in BUCS in the 2019/20 season.

The club itself is led by two GB International Coaches:

Chris Bunten (Head of Women’s)

Marc Steutel (Head of Men’s)

On top of all the fun you’ll have playing basketball, you’ll enjoy a variety of social events organised by the club making it the perfect opportunity to play the sport you love while having a great time and making new friends.

Basketball is one of our ‘BUCS WEEKLY’ clubs and so we recommend you come along to Sports Fair on 25 September 2019 and register for our Taster/Trial sessions.
