Welcome to Winchester City Basketball Club.
As a club we aim to bring together people from the Winchester area, who love the game of basketball. We have lots to offer everyone, from players who wish to learn more about the game and develop their skills, to those looking for the opportunity to play competitive team basketball at a high standard. There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved with coaching, officiating and many other areas of the game!
The club itself consists of four mens teams - Wasps, Wizards, Warriors and the Webs and a womens team - the Panthers. We also run junior sessions and teams that compete in the local area Central Venue League.
All these teams play at local league level.
The Wasps are the clubs first team and have just completed their 4th season in the Solent League. The team finished in 5th in their 2nd season in the top flight. They also won the 2011/12 Solent Area Cup beating the Portsmouth City Smugglers 78-59 in the final.
The Wizards have just completed their fifth season, winning the Solent League division 3 for the first time. The Wizards will compete in Solent League Eastern Conference to start 2012/13 hoping for a top 4 finish to secure division 1 basketball from Christmas.
The Warriors won 4 lost 11 in Solent league division 4 last season. This season due to league reshuffles they have been promoted up to division 3.
The Webs will begin in Solent league division 4. The team is slightly less serious than the clubs other 3 teams but will be looking to pick up a few wins this season.
The Panthers won their final 6 games of the season to leap frog out of a relegation place finishing in 3rd place in the league. They will be looking to improve on that this year and be serious challengers for some more silver wear.
Due to the high level of interest and the quality of player in the club, a team has once again been entered into the Men's Founders Cup. This national competition allows players to test their skills against teams from outside their local area. Winchester just missed out on qualifying for the knock out stages in 2009/10 after winning 2 and losing 4 games.
The club prides itself on its friendly but competitive approach to basketball and strives to promote the sport around Winchester.
