“Work Hard, Play Harder… On and off the court!”
Advice to incoming freshers
Get involved with anything and everything! Work hard, play harder – both on and off the court! Joining sports clubs is the best way to make the most of university and basketball is the best sports club on campus so there’s only one thing to do…
Get involved with anything and anyone! Meeting people from all over the world and having fun is what University is all about. And what better way than playing the sport you love while being part of the best sports club on campus! We have opportunities for everyone at the Basketball club, so there is only one thing to do… Come and see for yourself at the sports fair on the 6th of October!!
