The Men's Basketball Club has a team competing in the National Basketball League D2, 1st Team and a 2nd Team regularly competing in BUCS leagues, and 3rd Team and 4th Team taking part in the Sheffield Basketball League D1 and D2. The level of play is competitive, and the teams are selected through trials held at the start of the year. The club runs in partnership with Sheffield Sharks Basketball Club, giving a chance to talented and committed players to develop their career further. Weekly training sessions are run the EIS facility, and City campus and matches are typically on a Wednesday afternoon (BUCS), Thursday or Friday (SBL) and Saturday (NBL D2). Regular social sport sessions are also run for less competitive and developing players.
Come and play basketball in a social setting. Most sessions will involve match play where our Student Sport Activators will place you into equal teams. If you don’t know the rules or want to learn how to improve your performance, instruction can be provided upon request. Just bring a pair of trainers and get involved. These sessions focus on you getting as much court time as possible, so there's always a chance to learn and improve your game no matter what level you are at.
Sessions are £2.50 or free if you have a SHU-Active or Team Hallam membership. Just turn up on the day, or you can book in advance with our online booking system, or at SHU-Active reception. See https://www.teamhallam.org/asset/Organisation/6055/Poster-01-Sept-to-Dec-19-A4-Social-Sport-timetable.pdf and find a session. For any questions, email us.
