Basketball

A Team Derby Performance Sport, the Men’s Basketball Club trains three times a week and works in partnership with National League Team the Ilkeston Outlaws.

Sessions are facilitated by a highly qualified Basketball coach with weekly competition in the BUCS leagues.

To add to our successful 1st team we have a Men's 2nd team in BUCS, meaning that we can cater for more talent. The 2nd team have two qualified coaches this season which will help them progress and push for promotion.
