Club Background

Within the Women's Basketball Club the focus is very heavily placed on the athlete not just the player. The body and mind are instruments to becoming a better basketball player and the specific conditioning through a range of elite facilities allows every athlete's potential to be reached.

The Women's Basketball Club is one of the Cardiff Met Focus Sports who have been identified as a high performance club and under the guidance of the Performance Director aim to achieve the very highest standards. Focus Sports benefit from additional funding which includes a number of funded gym memberships and access to all sports facilities for focus athletes, strength and conditioning, nutritional support and discounted physiotherapy.

The club competes in BUCS Premier South and has been a regular at the BUCS Finals event in recent years, boasting both Gold and Silver medals. The club also has a BUCS 2nd team who gained promotion in the 2014-15 season to Western 1A conference.  Furthermore, the club also has teams in the elite WBBL club league, and in the English National league. The WBBL team were 2015 National Cup winners.
