Welcome to the Home of Champions.

The club forms part of an array of high-performance sports at Wits Sport. The 3-time USSA Champions 2014, 2017 & 2021 compete in yearlong leagues namely the Gauteng University Basketball League (GUBL) and Inner-City Super League (ICSL).

Our 1st team have participated in other annual tournaments such as Varsity Basketball of which the Wits Bucks (men's team) were crowned champions in 2018. In 2021, both Lady Bucks and Wits Bucks produced exceptional results at the USSA 2021 held in Gqeberha. Wits Bucks won gold and the Lady Bucks placed 3rd.

The club hosts two esteemed tournaments in Southern Africa held annually:

The Ashraf Lodewyk Memorial Basketball Tournament commonly known as Ashies. This tournament is aimed at commemorating the life of former Witsie and club member Ashraf Lodewyk who played a major role in many of the clubs’ successes.

The Annual Lady Bucks Basketball Tournament is an all-exclusive women's tournament aimed at promoting women's basketball and honoring women in sport.

Competing at a high level is what we do. Teams meet weekly for training with highly qualified coaches some of whom represented the blue and gold. We are led by leading Biokineticists who deal with team conditioning and rehabilitation. As an HP sport we have access to a high-performance gymnasium.

Joining the Wits Basketball Club is about community and self-development. We breed dedicated and driven student-athletes.

We Grind Together and Shine Together. Join Wits Basketball, the home of champions.
