The University of Canterbury Basketball Club caters for men and women and competes in the Canterbury Basketball Association club competition during the winter. The club has a 50+ year history and has had a number of NZ and Canterbury representatives. Currently the club has six teams including teams in the premier men’s and women’s grades.
Special thanks to the UCSA for funding towards the purchase of a new Women's Uniform set in 2012 to make it possible to enter another team in the Canterbury Club Basketball Competitions. Also for funding coaching clipboards, hoodies and basketballs in 2012.
We would like to acknowledge the support of the Air Rescue Services Ltd with donations for uniforms and entry fees in recent years. Also the good guys at Robbies Riccarton for their ongoing support to the club.
