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 email@example.com or drop into the SPORT Manchester office on Oxford Road.
Never played basketball before? Want to play recreationally? The university offers FREE beginners’ basketball sessions for both students and staff at The University of Manchester! All details are on the Sporticipate page but you’ll need to register first here. 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.
