Basketball - women

Welcome to the University of Sussex Women's Basketball Team!

We're an international, friendly team, who train hard to push for excellent results. We play in the 2A South East League and take part in the South Eastern Conference Cup, in which we were runners up in 2016/17!

If you are interested in playing basketball but missed tryouts please attend the women's basketball Active US session Sundays 1-2pm at the Sports Centre where we can discuss further. 

Team members are required to attend our two training sessions each week (Tuesday & Friday 6:30 pm)

Games are played on Wednesday afternoons, time dependant on the location and opposition.

All our fixtures are on the BUCS website: https://bucs.org.uk/bucscore/TeamProfile.aspx?id=788&sport=Basketball&institution=University%20of%20Sussex

Our team philosophy is to train as hard as possible, be completely focused on the court and fully committed to the team. But finally, enjoy our time together off the court at socials as we consider ourselves to be more than just a sports society, but a genuine group of close friends. Last year not only did we play well but we hosted charity basketball tournaments, won a student award and went to Valencia to play teams from all around Europe.

For anyone interested in playing basketball with less commitment or who didn't make the team, we have open sessions on Sundays 1-2pm that everyone can attend as part of the Active US scheme at Sussex. These sessions are open to any external members (e.g. non-students/ associate members) to any individual that identifies as a female!

Leaf Awards

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the present committee have achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:

Below are the Leaves that have been achieved by previous committees:

Inclusivity Leaf

The Inclusivity Leaf is awarded to groups who have taken positive steps to increase the diversity of their membership and include as many members as possible. They have made specific efforts to include students that don’t traditionally engage, without ignoring or neglecting their current membership or other student groups.




Social Leaf

The Social leaf is awarded to groups who have taken active steps to include as many members as possible and regularly engage in various social activities, including those organised by - and with - other societies/sports clubs.


Communications Leaf

The Communications Leaf is awarded to groups who communicate with their members and the student body regularly and in innovate ways.
