Sporting Focus: BL Basketball Club

This week we are shining the light onto our amazing Barts and the London Basketball Club! Get the low down on everything you need to know about this club below.

What days and times do you train? Where do you train?

We train every Wednesday from 6-8pm at Mossbourne Victoria Park Academy.

What makes your training sessions enjoyable?

Our team consist of a great group of guys committed to playing as hard as they can whilst having fun!

Our sessions involve basketball drills in order for us to improve individually and as a team, with some scrimmaging at the end of sessions to use these improved skills and compete against each other.

What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?

Undoubtedly the 2017-18 season has been our best yet.

After winning division 1 last year and being promoted, we have continued our great success to win the premier LUSL division which includes some of the best teams in London including Kings and UCL.

Along with this, we were able to reach the LUSL cup semi-final which is the furthest we have reached in this tournament.

We will also be hosting a great tournament in early May involving 11 medical schools which will be one of our biggest endeavours to put basketball on the map!

So why should you get involved?

Basketball is one of the most underrated sports in England but almost everyone who begins playing, will never go back.

Our club is definitely on the rise and with a range of members from beginners to long time players, it is suitable for anyone. The team aspect on and off the court is one of the best parts about our club as we are just as much a brotherhood as we are a team.

And a final fun fact about this club?

We have a very diverse team with players coming from around 6 different countries!
