Student Basketball

Basketball at Loughborough has developed significantly over the past five years and is quickly becoming one of the leading programmes for women's basketball in the UK. We cater for a wide range of abilities, and everyone is welcome to try out.

Recreational Basketball

Our recreational basketball programme consists of a variety of sessions which cater for all abilities and offer a fun, high energy environment. All recreational sessions are free for students and staff and are booked weekly through the Loughborough Sport app. Our qualified student coaches will deliver the cardio and my lifestyle basketball sessions weekly throughout term time, including wheelchair basketball for para and abled bodied athletes. Just Play Basketball, IMS and social sport basketball will all have a member of our student coaching team there to facilitate these sessions where necessary. If you are wanting to develop your playing skills, compete against other students or try basketball for the first time there is something for you in our recreational basketball offer.

Our recreational offer:

  • My lifestyle Wheelchair Basketball
  • Just Play Basketball
  • IMS
  • Social Sport

Intra-Mural Sport (IMS)

IMS is a free programme open to every Loughborough University student. It’s a fantastic way to make friends and compete in a range of diverse and inclusive sports that will ensure you get the most out of your hall experience.

Social Sport

The social sport basketball programme offers a free competitive weekly league to play socially with groups of friends. The basketball league allows you to define your own level of competition and is a great way to stay active and take a break from your academic commitments.
