The Club

East Cambs Basketball Club, were formed when two basketball clubs in the East Cambridgeshire Area, Witchford Warriors and Ely Flames, merged in August 2014.

We run 5 junior teams at Under 10/12/14/16/18 age levels (8 years old to 17 years old) and 2 senior men’s team (Ages 18 +) and this season we have relaunched our female basketball team the East Cambs Amazons offering basketball to the female community for ages 12+.  The Senior men and Junior teams are the East Cambs Warriors and the female team are the East Cambs Amazons.

All of our teams are now based in the Sports Hall at Kings School, Ely.  Our junior teams have been at the school since we became East Cambs Basketball Club and this season we have now been able to move the club to the school, to establish our new basketball home.

This season 2021-2022 our senior men’s team continue to play in the Nene Valley Basketball League, which is a central venue league in Stanground, Peterborough, we will be entering two teams this year one in Division 1 and one in Division 2.

Our under 12/14/16 junior teams will be competing in the Peterborough Junior Basketball League this season, where we have had some success at under 16 level.  Our under 12 team will also be competing in the Fastbreak Basketball League in Cambourne near to Cambridge.

After a couple of years we are pleased to announce that thanks to the support from Kings School, we are able to relaunch our female basketball program The Amazons.  We will be offering fun coached sessions to introduce junior female players from the age of 12 to 17, who are new to the game, returning to the game or current players.  The plan this season is to establish the base for the team and then look to enter local league competition within the next two years.  Matches will be organised against other local teams and club teams for match experience.

We have recently launched two new sessions.  On Wednesday evenings we have our skills session which takes place on Wednesday evening 7pm-8pm and is for club members only. It is a session for club members to come down and work on all aspects of their own game, either by themselves or with a team mate.

Thursday nights is our open scrimmage night which is on between 6pm-8pm in the sports hall at Kings School and is open to anyone in the East Cambs area who wants to turn up and play basketball.  Its a turn up and play session – pay on the door!

The club and all its players and coaching staff are registered with Basketball England.  Our coaches are qualified with Basketball England at either Level 1 or Level 2.  All of our coaches are fully enhanced DBS checked and also have qualifications in Safeguarding and First Aid.

We provide fun but intense training sessions with the essence of the training on player development, focusing on the fundamentals of the game, helping the players to develop hand/eye coordination, team work and confidence in their own abilities.  So if you are new to the game, want to get back into the game, or are seriously interested in playing, please get in touch.

We continue to try to grow the game and the club in the East Cambs area and have support from our equipment supplier Bigfoot Basketball, our merchandise supplier Sigma Embroidery and the clubs kit manufacturer Hoop Freaks Basketball.  As a club we are always looking for new partnership and sponsorship opportunities, so if you would like to be part of this amazing family then please get in touch.
