The Northumbria University basketball programme is consistently ranked top three in the UK. Working closely with the Newcastle Eagles BBL and WBBL teams, developing students have the opportunity to progress into the professional game.

Last season the women’s team won the BUCS Premier North title and were runners up in the Championship finals. Whilst the men were runners up in the BUCS Premier North league and Championship finals.

Players benefit from a programme that rivals a professional team, with daily training including individual and team based court sessions, as well as strength & conditioning, performance analysis and more.

We pride ourselves on our highly experienced coaching team led by Marc Steutel current GB Men’s Assistant Coach and Chris Bunten GB Women’s Assistant Coach.
