The University of Waikato Basketball Club
Newly formed in 2016, The University of Waikato Basketball club was established to enhance the basketball opportunities for students at the University of Waikato. Now open to both students and community members, the club is quickly growing in numbers.
Catering for both competitive and social players, the club entered seven teams into the Waikato Basketball Men’s and Mixed Leagues in 2017 which started in June.
All teams had their weekly training sessions at the Faculty of Education (FOE) Gym.
2017 TRIALS will be held in late April/ early May, join the Facebook page below to stay up to date with the latest info!
