Basketball Club

Welcome to EUBC! We have 6 competitive teams and one intramural team, meaning there is definitely one for you!

If you have any questions about joining, training or coaching, please feel free to get in touch at basketball@ed.ac.uk, on facebook/instagram (UofEBasketball)!

 

We currently have six teams competing within the club, three men’s teams, and three women’s teams.

The squads compete in a range of competitions within the Scottish National League, British University and Colleges Sport (BUCS) competitions, and Scottish Student Sports competitions. We also have a mixed intramural team that has a self-refereed hour-long game every Saturday.

As we have so many teams within EUBC, we are able to offer basketball at all levels from beginner up to elite performance level. We were the first ever Scottish basketball representatives at the elite level of BUCS competition, with both of our men’s and women’s 1st teams having competed in the Northern Premier League.

We play our home games at the Pleasance Sport & Exercise complex or St. Leonard’s Land games hall in central Edinburgh.  The CSE played host to a FIBA competition in 2008 and was the previous home of the Basketball Scotland National Finals weekend from 2007-2013.

Home games take place on Wednesday afternoons and evenings – entry to games is free and supporters are always welcome!
