Winner of Most Improved Club 2016 and LSESU Gold STARS Award 2017, 2018 & 2019!
LSE Women’s Basketball is one of the most fun, friendly and inclusive clubs in the LSE Athletics Union. We won ‘Most Improved Club’ of the LSE Athletics Union in 2016 and won a Gold STARS Award in 2017, 2018 and 2019!
Basketball is a brilliant sport to get involved in, especially at LSE. We have a professional coach and our players range from complete beginners to advanced players. Our club has included lots of freshers, masters and general course students over the last few years - we welcome everyone!
1st TEAM: FRIDAY 18:30 – 20:00
2nd TEAM: THURSDAY 18:30 – 20:00
Venue: Harris Academy, St Johns Wood, Marlborough Hill, London NW8 0NL and Harris Academy, Bersmondey, 55 Southwark Park Rd, Bermondsey, London, SE16 3TZ.
We also have an optional weekly training on campus: Day/Time TBC in Old Building Basement (on LSE Campus)
Last year was successful for the 1st team who came in the top 5 of the league and the 2nd team improved incredibly! Both teams played in Les Parisiennes Tournament with the 1st team making it to the finals and taking home 2nd place! We hope to make this year even better, with the help of our coach and incoming members.
We play in two leagues:
- BUCS South Eastern 2B
- LUSL Intermediate Premier
Our games usually take place on Wednesdays (BUCS) and Sundays (LUSL) during term time.
Off the court we are a very social club with many activities to take part in! The team is not limited to the basketball court but movie nights, team dinners, and exciting AU traditions such as costume-themed Carol and weekly nights out at Zoo Bar in Leicester Square! We are planning more exciting socials this year which will bring us closer as a team and help to get to know each other even better!
Last year, along with the Men’s Basketball Club, we competed in Paris in the Les Parisiennes 2018 Sports Tournament. We also travelled to nearby towns to compete in away games which is a great way to see different parts of the country. Moreover, we are a team that loves to give back and last year we helped volunteer at a local farm which was great fun. The social aspect of the club is one of the unique things about our team and will be a highlight of your time at LSE!
