We start from the age of 8 years old, all the way to adult.
We are a friendly basketball club available for all players of any standard from the age of 8.
So, if you are new to the game, returning to the game or a keen player looking to join a local club then come along to any of our sessions. You do not have to sign up to play for any of the squads either. Just turn up for the session for your age group no need to book!
All of our teams from junior to senior compete in local league competition, either at a central venue competition (CVC) or on a home and away basis. All of our home matches are played on a Tuesday evening during the season.

Pay as you play or Annual membership

This year we have three ways to pay:
