Basketball Research Interest Group

 Chaired by Professor Derek M Peters, research interest within our group reflects both multi- and inter-disciplinary investigation of basketball. The interest group is uniquely placed to undertake extensive and world-leading research in basketball at all levels and in all formats of the game. We have an established reputation for basketball in the UK and beyond, with extensive international collaborations with staff from the Lithuanian Sports University and the University of Leon (Spain).

The group also supports the new online International Journal of Basketball Research (ISSN 2055-5946) that aims to be the journal of choice for all basketball research undertaken world-wide, and RIG members also contribute strongly to the delivery of the unique MSc in European Basketball Coaching Science.

The Basketball research interest group membership is fluent and inclusive. If you are interested in any aspect of our work, if you wish to be involved, or to discuss, engage in, or commission any basketball related research or evaluation, including basketball-related ‘product’ evaluations, please contact Professor Derek M Peters via or +44 (0) 1905 855352.
