ESSEX BLADES Men's Basketball


Basketball is now a performance based sport at Essex and is also FREE. Purchase or Renew your membership for 2016/2017 NOW!

Basketball is a fast-paced, fun, indoor sport that you will not regret joining this year. We have two teams, competing in the BUCS 1st & 3rd division respectively. There are also weekly Just Play sessions during term which are aimed at providing a social atmosphere where players of all different abilities can enjoy quick games together. These sessions have produced talent in past years and have continued to add to the social aspect of Basketball due to the orientation around fun in them.

In the 16/17 season the 1st Team narrowly missed promotion into the premier division and also made it to the semi Finals of the SE Conference Cup. The 2nd team also enjoyed a highly succesful season in which they achieved promotion after an undefeated run.  the Club is looking for new and ambitious players to join both teams in the upcoming 16/17 season.

We play highly competitve Basketball on the court and bond as a squad in the various social events we hold and attend throughout the year. The social aspect of basketball creates a scene in which members have fun, gain new experiences aswell as making new friends throughout the course of the year. We are also one of the most diverse clubs on campus, with players from a wide range of different cultures/languages all with the same passion for basketball .

You can find more information about the club on Men's Basketball facebook page.
