The Student Basketball Club Baros was founded on Febuary 14th 1968 by a group of students with a love for basketball. Over the years it has grown into a club with approximately 160 members.
These teams are active on a broad range of levels, ranging from a national level to the lower local classes. Over the years many things have changed, but Baros still remins a group of (former) students that love parties and basketball. It is therefore hardly surprising that after practices (especially on tuesday) and games the members of Baros hang around for some drinks at the cafeteria in the gym or one of the many bars that can be found around Rotterdam.
Apart from basketball, Baros aims to organise multiple social drinks per season. Also our annual international mixed tournament, which is traditionally held during the third weekend of March, has established a reputation for being well organised with a great atmosphere.
Baros has teams playing games at a variety of different levels. But Baros also provides the opportunity to simply come to the practices which are led by a qualified trainer.
This season we have 12 teams of which 10 play competition:
Mens 1 and Ladies 1 play 1ste Divisie (3rd highest level in The Netherlands), Mens 2 plays 2de Divisie and Ladies 2 plays 1ste Klasse. The other teams play 2de Klasse or lower (lowest 3 levels). These are regional competitions.
Mens 8 and Ladies 4 are practice only teams and are a great place for beginners to get more experience playing basketball!
