Our Club | Oxford University Basketball Club
OUBbC has a long tradition of getting students throughout Oxford involved in basketball, with New York Knicks Bill Bradley (Mens Blues 1965-1967) and former US President Bill Clinton (Mens Twos, 1968) amongst its famous alumni.
OUBbC has five teams competing in the British Universities and College Sports (BUCS) championships and national competitions : Mens Blues, Womens Blues, Mens Twos and Womens Twos in addition to a wheelchair basketball team. The club is therefore accessible for both wheelchair basketball and running basketball, with wheelchair basketball inclusive of both wheelchair users and non-wheelchair users. The teams also compete in the annual Varsity Match against Cambridge in Hilary term and the club organises a College League in Michaelmas and Hilary Terms and a Cuppers Competition in Trinity term, involving teams from many Oxford Colleges.

Inter-College | League & Cuppers
College League is the best way to hone your skills, footwork and tactics outside of the Uni team. Teams can be mixed; both in terms of college and gender, and compete over the first two terms. Games are held at Iffley Road Sports Centre; each team playing once every week or so.
Several of our players have come up through the College League, so if you don't make it through trials; get on it!
For more info contact your College's sports rep or get in touch with the club.
