Bucks Basketball is one of the top competing sports clubs in Bucks New University. They all compete in the British University College Sports league (BUCS). We offer basketball to both men and women who compete separately in their own leagues.
Currently, our Bucks men’s 1st team is low on players and we are still pending our men’s captain position. We hope to fill this vacancy by the start of this next university year.
On the other hand, our Bucks women’s 1st team are in the first division of the South-Eastern conference for the second year in a row. This team is one of the most successful teams we have at Bucks, having earned ‘Team of the Year’ award for three consecutive years from 2016-2018 and nominated for the award in 2019. They won the South-Eastern Conference Cup Final two years in a row before losing the cup in 2017-2018 and coming in second place this past 2018-2019 year. They are friendly, hardworking and a strong team who enjoy practicing as well as playing all together.
Their main aims this year, apart from gaining as many players and playing as hard as they can, is to try and remain in first division and run activities (socials, takeover, RAG, etc.) to keep the team united and enjoy time with each other and other sports / societies within the university.
Both the men and women are hoping to get as many new passionate and enthusiastic players as they can. We encourage anyone who wants to be a part of our sport club, anyone who wants to be pushed to their best of their abilities and also gain skills in a fun and competitive sport, to come along and join us in this coming season. Any abilities are welcome to join both the men and women’s team!

Captain 2014 - 2015
Being a captain for Bucks Ladies Basketball was a great experience. Working with dedicated and passionate individuals was absolutely amazing. We managed to grow and improve together as a team and that was the main thing that made me very proud to be a captain. When we lost, we lost together as a team and when we won, we won together as a team! I tried everything I could to improve the team's stamina and strengths; constant running, exercise and extra training hours. In the end it was all worth it and I am very much honoured to have had the chance to be a captain. I wish the next captain the best (Yamna) and good luck to the team!! Go hard, or go home!
