Club Universitario de Buenos Aires, commonly known for its acronym CUBA, is a sports club with headquarters in the Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires, Argentina's federal district. Universitario hosts the practise of a large variety of sports and activities, such as basketball, boxing, fencing, football, golf, field hockey, gymnastics, martial arts, paddle tennis, rowing, rugby union, scuba diving, skiing, squash, swimming, tennis, volleyball, waterpolo, weightlifiting and windsurfing.
One of the sports the club had gained more recognition is rugby union, which senior team currently plays in the URBA Grupo I, the first division of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires. "CUBA" has won 14 first division titles to date.
The Club was founded on May 11, 1918, by a group of university students as a mean of fostering camaraderie in a politics-free environment. The main request to become a member was to be a university student. In 1917, after a basketball game played in the Young Christian Association -which ended in a riot act- some of its members were punished. Many of those members would be fund the club one year later.
At present, CUBA has many branches disseminated over Argentina:
- Headquarters, known among members as "Viamonte", due to its address, 1560 Viamonte street, located in the neighborhood known as "Tribunales", this term meaning "courts" in Spanish.
- Palermo, in the park section of that quarter, on Avenida Figueroa Alcorta. The land had been occupied by a dependence of Argentine Air Force until October, 1963, when the Government of Buenos Aires donated it to the club.
- Núñez, located in the homonymous neighbourhood, was opened in 1959.
- Villa de Mayo, in Malvinas Argentinas Partido, Greater Buenos Aires, approximately 30 km NW of the city of Buenos Aires. CUBA settled there after the club had to leave its facilities in Palermo, Buenos Aires, which belonged to Club Obras Sanitarias.
- Cabaña El Arbolito (Little Tree Cabin), located near Nahuel Huapi Lake, 80 km of Bariloche. That land was donated by the Government of Argentina in 1931.
- Catedral, placed in the major tourism centre of Bariloche.
- Fátima, sited in the homonymous city of the Pilar Partido. This branch was built due to the increasing number of members needing another place to play golf. Facilities (located in a gated community) were definitely finished in 1991.
