 Basketball club which offers a genuine welcome


 Facebook   Stamford Pick Up Basketball

If you are looking to get into basketball, or even start up again, then Stamford Pick Up Basketball is the club for you.

Based at Borderville Sports Centre the club offers a welcoming atmosphere.

 

Co-founder Matthew Knight explained: “We're a very casual club for all skill levels. We have members who play just for fun, some who play for teams, some older players and some in their late teens but the atmosphere is always light hearted and welcoming  - apart from Christmas tournament season. That is very serious business!

 

He enlarged: “We try to promote a community feel amongst our members. For instance we are running a club trip to see the Harlem Globe Trotters this April.”

 

The club meet up every Thursday at 8pm at the Borderville Sports Hall. It was founded three years ago by Matthew, Brad Peck, Jon Smith and Tom Peel. They started outdoors on a Saturday but the club has grown a lot since then.


They have 14 regular players and six or eight who play occasionally . The club is active all year round with a break at Christmas. They also run the aforementioned Christmas Tournament in the two months prior to The festivities. They also, sometimes, arrange Saturday morning games outside.

 

Borderville is their main home but, when the weather is warm and dry, they play outdoors on Stamford Rec Ground as well

 

The club charges two rates: £3.50 per session or £20-25 (depending on numbers) for a set of 10 sessions.

For anyone wishing to join they can show up unannounced or email,  phone or connect via facebook beforehand. Telephone: 07540894073
