Campus Sport Basketball

If you are not tempted by joining our Athletic Union Basketball Clubs, did you know you can play more informal competition as part of our intra-university Campus Basketball sport league every week.

If you are a beginner, returning to Basketball or just want to play recreationally in a league, Campus Sport is the ideal environment for you to develop your skills and build the confidence you need to take the next step and represent the University!


About the league

The Campus Sport Basketball League is mixed; teams must have a 4-1 split in sexes, in favour of either, on the court at any one time. In addition, both students and staff are welcome to enter. The league runs from October to April and matches are played on Fridays, 8:00-10:00pm, at the Sugden Sports Centre.

Team captains are invited to attend a pre-season meeting, at the Sugden Sports Centre. At this meeting teams received all relevant league information for the year, including a handbook and league fixtures. For more information contact campus.sport@manchester.ac.uk or drop into the UoM Sport office on Oxford Road.

Sporticipate Basketball

Would you like to try out basketball? Or have you played basketball before but haven’t played in a very long time? Are you staff member and can’t find people to play with? Then Sporticipate basketball is for you!

The university offers FREE basketball sessions for both students and staff at The University of Manchester!


Once you sign up, you can also try out other sports for free, with over 70 hours of free sport available each week!

Sporticipate basketball is run weekly throughout the academic year. All equipment is provided by the friendly session leaders, who deliver fun sessions specifically for beginners. There are both mixed sessions and women only sessions to suit all needs.

After you’ve signed up there’s no need to register for individual sessions, just turn up as and when you are available. Make sure you wear comfortable clothing, and bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. We’ll see you there!
