Sporting Focus: QMBL Basketball

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

Fridays 5-8.30 and Sundays 10-2 in QMotion sports hall

What makes your training sessions enjoyable?

On Mondays our whole club comes together, from first team to beginners and social members. This is the perfect opportunity for everyone to develop new friendships, laugh and have fun. The training sessions are tailored to everyone's abilities so that all members are able to participate. We have such a wide range of abilities within our club and everyone feels so welcome. We learn new skills each week and build upon the skills learnt in previous session, with each drill having an element of competition to make it more engaging and enjoyable. Each session finishes with games where everyone will have their chance to shine.

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

Our biggest success of this year has been our amazing charity work and community sport project. This is the first year we have been thoroughly involved in giving back. We have raised over £500 and collected more than 1400 sanitary products in aid of the Red Box Project to help stop period poverty. We are now currently running another fundraiser so keep your eyes out for everything that is to come!! It is the first time we have ever ran our community sport project and it has been a complete success with over 25 students attending each session in which they learn a new basketball skill each week and also have a discussion about healthy eating and exercising.

So why should you get involved?

Our club is a cross campus club, having both QM and BL members. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet new people, learn new skills and become apart of our biggest family yet. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming and we all love to play basketball together. Our skills range from a very high level to beginner level, with no one being 'too small' to play!! Everyone who has joined our club has loved every minute of it. For anyone who would like to play competitively our 1st team competes in BUCS 1A coming second last year and our second team has just been promoted to LUSL premier this year!!

And a final fun fact about this club?

We have a wide range of nationalities within our club with our members coming from over 25 different countries
