Courtside 2020

December 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Get your tickets to the biggest basketball night of the year!

Presented by the UBC Thunderbirds x The Calendar x AMS Events x UBC Birdcage

Whether you’ve always been a basketball fan or you’ve recently fallen in love with the game watching the Raptors clinch their first NBA championship in June 2019, we have the perfect UBC event for you: our annual COURTSIDE Basketball festival happening on Friday February 7.


Help us fill War Memorial Gym with screaming fans, to give our teams the home court advantage and show our opponents – the Winnipeg Wesmen – how much school pride we have in our Thunderbird Basketball teams.

Secure your seat at the Women’s game tipping off at 6pm followed by the Men’s team at 8pm.

Come early for our pre-game festival on the War Memorial Gym concourse and enjoy lots of extra fun and goodies throughout the evening:

  • Contesting and prizes (stay tuned for details)
  • Live half time shows
  • Entertainment during breaks in play
  • Basketball skills games
  • Photo ops with our T-Bird Mascot ‘Thunder’
  • Face painting & poster making stations
  • Live DJs
  • Food & drinks

** Keep an eye on our social channels for your chance to win a true VIP Courtside experience.**

The court action wraps up by 9:30pm but the Thunder continues at our official after party (stay tuned for details).
