About Our Club

Heriot Watt Basketball Club’s ambition is to provide basketball & social opportunities for all. We have a lot of opportunities for our members to compete within our BUCS teams as well as to participate in recreational sessions to play for fun, meet new people, keep fit or develop your skills. We have three men’s teams and one women’s team. We also have plenty of social opportunities off the court for members which includes going to our bar sponsor and on campus study sessions, so there is something for everyone.  

If you want to know more about the club before coming to Heriot-Watt, the best way to reach us is on Instagram @hwubbc or email our club President, Jack McIlvenny basketball@hw.ac.uk. Both accounts are now monitored very regularly.
