What a busy week!

Trowbridge basketball club has had a busy week as our new Junior programme and women’s basketball got underway!

Our sold out 13 Week Junior programme had a successful first week despite our lead coach Matt Analts having to isolate. We seen a total 47kids walk through our sports hall doors on Monday the 13th. We hope they all enjoyed there first session and are excited for future sessions with our Club.

Women’s basketball made a return on Sunday the 12th. The ladies have finally got back to indoor basketball and it was great to see players from Bristol attend our training sessions. The ladies are always looking for players to join there friendly community!

On Saturday we announced that we will be returning to Men’s WEBBA a local League we once took part in over 7years ago. This is exciting news for us as a Club and will help us to provide development for TBL(Central Venue League) players. This will help towards our aims to provide a recreational CVL easily accessible to new players. Although more planning needs to be done before we can register within the League.

New updates to our website will be made in the upcoming days to reflect the developments from the club.

We lost our hero

On the 10th of April after a long battle our Founder, coach and friend Vince Marriott(Vin) sadly passed away.

Vince had a huge impact on so many of us. He was always there to provide us with support and guidance and did it so selflessly.

Vince also had a great impact across the whole basketball community including his work in refereeing, coaching and development.

He put so much of his time and efforts into basketball and developing young athletes.

He has led and helped in the development of Junior programmes here at Trowbridge and in Bristol.

Vince founded our Central Venue League in 2014 which then formally become the TBL in 2017.

Vince also was involved with Bristol Flyers and most recently an assistance coach for under 14s national League side .

He will always be remembered at our club as the remarkable man that provided us with a club that all can attend to play the sport we all love.

In the coming weeks our committee will be discussing options where we will honour Vince anually. We will also be discussing the options to run a charity event to raise money for kidney research uk.

Trowbridge had the opportunity to play some well established teams which play in WEBBA and other local Leagues.

we are so proud of our local Club as we managed to win all our games!

This was due to great overall effort from our players. It was also great to give some of our younger members the opportunity to play at a different level. Special well done to Joel Rooprai, Dion Smith and Elias Marton-Browne. It was great to see the confidence and attitude you displayed.
