UniSport Australia is thrilled to announce the expansion of the University Basketball League Australia (UBL) with four new universities taking to the courts in the second year of the competition.
The student-only competition has proved to be hugely popular across the country, building on many historic university rivalries.
Joining the league in 2022 will be Curtin University, Federation University Australia, RMIT University and The University of Adelaide in addition to the seven founding universities: La Trobe University, The University of Melbourne, University of the Sunshine Coast, The University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, The University of Western Australia and Victoria University.
As in the 2021 season, every game of the 2022 UBL will be livestreamed, with the games played mid-week on campus enabling students and alumni to support their universities.

“We are excited to welcome the four new universities to the UBL competition for 2022,” says UniSport CEO Mark Sinderberry.
“The expansion of the league in its second year is a testament to the success of the UBL competition, the league being built on the incredible passion students have for representing their universities on the national stage.
“The development of the league is also being recognised internationally; with the imminent reopening of our borders, we are very excited at the emerging opportunities for our teams within the Asian rim.”
The 2022 UBL will tip off on 22 March 2022, with eight weeks of home and away games culminating in two weeks of finals at the end of May 2022. The grand finals will be a home and away event in the week commencing 23 May 2022.
The schedule for 2022 UBL will be released soon.
