University of Birmingham Medical Society

UBMS Basketball

UBMS Basketball Club has pulled-up to be one of MedSoc’s most inclusive sports teams, welcoming a record number of new members from non-medical backgrounds, resulting in a majority of our club being made up on non-medics. Though we are a MedSoc society, everyone is welcome!

The club itself offers a triple threat of training, scrimmages and competitive games minus the insane amount it costs to play with the main university team. We don’t fade away from other clubs either, as when we’re not competing in the West Midlands Basketball League, we play many friendly games including against the Malaysian and UoB basketball teams. For those wanting a step-back from the intense competition, our scrimmages are a great way enjoy the game without the pressure of competing in a league, so come and go as you wish!

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 a 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)
