Basketball scholarship

Find out more about our basketball scholarship at UoG.

Basketball is a developing sport in Gloucester and at UoG. This year we have continued our partnership with Gloucester City Kings, the local men’s basketball team who play in the National Basketball League – Division 3.

Our University side competes in the the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) leagues on Wednesday afternoons, and many of our students play in either national league for Kings, or in one of the lower Kings teams in the local league. There are certainly plenty of basketball opportunities available for keen players to come and get involved in.

Players who gain entry to the UoG competitive team will have access to the extra benefits of being on our performance sport pathway. These include:

We are able to provide some scholarship options to players who show great potential to help our team continue their success in order to climb the BUCS leagues.
