Our basketball club is one of our newer clubs at Badu but is growing quickly. Currently running training sessions for 7-12-year-olds and 13-19-year-olds once a week during term time and during holidays as part of our ‘For You By You’ project, we have seen keen interest from our young players.
As one of the fastest-growing sports in the UK, want to be able to provide more accessibility for young people to be able to play basketball regularly and at a high level.
Breaking that barrier is something that we believe will take basketball to the next level in this country. Having regular training sessions and spaces to play is something our coaches are passionate about and want to make sure we deliver to those who show interest in the sport. In the past three years, we have held various basketball tournaments in Hackney.
Our most popular tournament was held in 2019 as part of the Hackney Festival of Fitness. Our aim is to go bigger and better this year once all restrictions have been lifted.
