UBMS Basketball

Last year has seen UBMS Basketball Club pull-up to be one of MedSoc’s fastest-growing sports teams, welcoming over 40 new and returning members to the squad. Last season we have also been excited to welcome a record-number of members from other courses, including crossovers from Biomedical Sciences and Physiotherapy.

The club offers a triple threat of training, competitive games and socials. Between training twice a week, playing in the West Midlands Basketball League, Rose Bowl Cup and friendly fixtures against locals teams (including the prison inmates at HMP Featherstone), it has been a busy year for the club! We don’t fade away from activity off the court either, with regular team socials including club dinners, posting up on Halloween and a chance to pick-and-roll during our legendary Selly Oak Scavenger Hunt.

We’re a fun, friendly and inclusive team of men and women of all abilities, spanning all years of Medicine. Whether you’re here to have fun or win it all, you may just be that euro-step that gets us to the top. Feel free to come along to any training session if you’d like to give it a go. Or if you have any questions feel free to email us at or visit our Facebook group (UBMS basketball)
