So... cut a long story short. I was at Abertay for half a year before leaving for various reasons including the course not being right for me.
However, more to the point, prior to arriving there, I had been hyped up about joining the basketball club for a good year or two, as I'd shyed away from joining my school's club, so sufficed with playing it in PE.
So you can imagine my disappointment when come fresher's fayre, I went to sign up, but found out they only had a 1st team and no club for inexperienced students.
So... this time around, I want to know what opportunities are available to me. So in University of Edinburgh, is the basketball club open to beginners and skilled players alike? Or do they just have training for the teams? If it's the latter, on the off-chance, does anyone know of any other places in Edinburgh where an individual like myself with less experience/ability can play/train? (Also being over the age of 18!)
I also want to do it for my Duke of Edinburgh Award which I'm supposed to be starting now, however, I don't know of any clubs or what not for over 18s which are geared towards or even open to inexperienced players.
...and how to stay positive
