Swindon Shock Community session a huge success!
Thanks to a Swindon Sports Forum grant of £500, Swindon Shock Basketball Club has set up an open community session at their home court at Oakfield Campus in Swindon. With the season in full flow, and both their National and Junior sides full, Swindon Shock wanted to offer a pay as you play option for those wanting to play recreational basketball.
The session has been a huge success and regularly sees 15-20 joining in with the session each week. The community session runs every Thursday evening and offers players of all the levels the opportunity to play basketball at a level that suits them.
David Colclough, Swindon Shock coach has been incredibly pleased with how popular the session has been received by members of the community and plans to grow the session to include even more people. Many of the people that have attended the session have now gone on to play in a competitive fixture for the club whether it be for the Senior or Junior team respectively.
Swindon Shock are proud to be one of only a select few basketball clubs in the South West area that offers a clear pathway for those that want to play both competitively and non-competitively basketball at various levels. They have been able to put this fantastic pathway in place thanks to the financial support received from Swindon Sports Forum as well as several other local organisations.
If you are interested in playing basketball, contact David Colclough from Swindon Shock who will be able to provide you with more details.
