Basketball is an explosive sport filled with speed, power and high scoring games, sure to bring excitement to all, whether playing or spectating. Cardiff Met Archers Basketball Club has an extensive Senior Men's programme playing at a variety of levels, so there is definitely a place for anyone who wishes to develop their skills and compete. The programme has four men's teams in NBL Division Three (National League), BUCS (University League) and SWBA (Local League). The club also runs an intramural social basketball session, supported by Pinnacle Campus Sport, for anyone who wishes to play socially and develop their skills without the commitment to a team playing regular games.
The Men'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.
