Who plays? Among Scottish FE & HE institutions, basketball is a fiercely popular sport with regular competitive and recreational opportunities.

What is there? The best university teams, both men’s and women’s, compete within the BUCS set-up to be crowned Scottish Champions. All teams take part in the BUCS trophy competing against teams from around Britain. Basketball is readily adopted by a mix of universities and colleges in the SSS regionalised structure.

When does all this happen? All the events are generally on the weekends and spaced throughout the course of the academic year.
