Basketball

Women’s Captain: “Our basketball team is like the five fingers on your hand. If you can get them all together, you have a fist. We ball together and party together.”

“My name is Vladislav Kolesnik, better known as Vlad. I study Investment & Financial Risk Management at Cass Business School. This will be my fourth year playing basketball at City. I am the captain of this year’s City Men’s Basketball 1st Team.

“Last season we played in the South Eastern 2B division and finished in second place. This year we will be playing in both 2nd division league and cup competitions. Our goal will be to return to the 1st division. That could be achieved only by wining either of the tournaments.

“Moreover our practices and games will take place at CitySport, the multi-purpose sports facility. The basketball court is of the highest quality as well as the place for spectators with up to 400 seats!

“A few words about our team coach Marlan. He wants everybody to work hard and show a lot of effort. Marlan has been coaching the team for quite a long time, so he knows what needs to be done in order to win.

Men’s Captain Vladas: “Apart from playing basketball, our team loves to have fun. Our trips to Rotterdam become like a tradition. For the past several years, at the end of each season our team goes there to compete in a mixed tournament and have a good time. Additionally, during the season almost on each Wednesday night our team could be found in the social place for the students – CityBar.

“Overall, playing for the Men’s basketball team is really a valuable, entertaining and fun experience. “We will be looking forward to meeting new players as some of our members finish their studies so more opportunities become available for others. Do not miss your chance!”
