QMBL Women’s Basketball has been the current QMSU Club of the Year for three years in a row now! We strive to be the club where everyone can perform at their best! Year after year, we welcome QM and BL players from all possible backgrounds, with or without experience in the sport, to come and join. We aim to provide a platform upon which everyone can train and improve, as well as socialise and make new friends. As a large club, we pride ourselves on our sense of community. Our social secretaries arrange a variety of formal and informal socials throughout the year (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), where members can get to know each other as well as other sports clubs.
Club Sport is a huge part of our University experience, and we want to make it as memorable for everyone looking to join as well. We offer the opportunity to improve basketball skills in weekly trainings, where sessions are tailored to individual needs.
Our more advanced players can compete in our high-aiming BUCS performance team and a Development Team that competes in the LUSL Intermediate Division. For non-competitors, our base membership fee covers both socials and trainings because we want to offer all members the opportunity to build relationships both on and off court. In addition, we provide a beginner's This Girl Can session every week open to everyone of all abilities included in our social membership!
So no matter if you’re a beginner, an advanced player or somewhere in between, we would love to welcome you into the club!
