With undoubtedly one of the best Basketball facilities in the country, IIT Bombay boasts of a very rich basketball scene. More often than not, you will find both the courts filled with enthusiastic hoopsters - skilled and unskilled - trying their hands at the game. The sport offers equal opportunities to both the beginners and the pros to hone their skills.
