I am tempted to join the basketball society next year but the problem is I've never played and I'm 5ft5.

Is my height gonna be an issue? More importantly what's the average height at societies like this

There will be beginner classes and non competitive teams, so it shouldn't be an issue

You’re obviously a point guard and don’t expect everyone to be like 7ft centres or whatever , they’re mostly probably like 6’2 - 6’6 , just use your speed and handles and you’ll be good

So you reckon that everyone there will be around the mid 6ft?

The players in the basketball teams at my uni aren’t all super tall! For the men’s team, obviously there’s some towering over, and I’d say a large number are over 6ft, but there’s also a good number who are shorter (some significantly so) and are still great players - they tend to be much faster and more agile. Equally I’d say the female team are all relatively average height for females. You just need to give it a go and I’m sure there’ll be a place for you, whether thats in a beginner team, or somewhere more advanced/competitive!

I'm a guy so I just feel I'll be dwarfed
