Men's & Women's Basketball

Getting involved in Intramural basketball couldn’t be simpler. Once you’ve reserved your place, turn up to one of two sessions, and play. It doesn’t matter what your experience or skill level is, everyone is welcome.

Coaching and equipment is provided at both sessions and you do not need a team to play. Our coaches will structure the session so you receive drill based activities plus lots of game time.

Intramural basketball sessions run in partnership with the University Basketball Club.
