The Cambridge University Basketball Club promotes basketball of the highest standard at the University
The Cambridge University Basketball Club has been developing and supporting basketball at the University for more than half a century. With our two men’s teams, we represent the University in national and international competitions, as well as run a College league for undergraduate and graduate students in Cambridge — attracting more than 250 players every year.
The reach of the club has a vibrant network of alumni, who stay engaged with events such as alumni dinners and traditional yearly alumni games between former and current players of the club.
The club faces annual costs of court bookings, payment for referees, acquisition of new sports gear, playing kits, travel expenses, and more which total approximately £10,000 a year. As a result, the club is forced to charge each player an annual membership fee of £180. Your support would allow us to make these financial burdens manageable and relieve pressure on our players while also giving club members more opportunities to promote basketball in Cambridge and beyond.
To support the next generation of Cambridge students embarking upon a dual career, the University of Cambridge Athlete Performance Programme (UCAPP) is helping to expand the roster of world-class athletes who shaped their sporting career while studying at Cambridge.
