South Essex Swifts 
Basketball Club

There is no training until the end of June.  

Check back for details regarding training across the summer.


Swifts basketball club have made some major changes ahead of the 2018/19 season.  For the second year, they will be playing at Woodlands School in Basildon with a particular emphasis on developing younger players in an area that has previously had little opportunity for growth.

For this season, the club will only field one boys team in the National League, at under 16 level, as well as girls teams at under 18, 16 and 14 age groups.  There continues to be 2 men's teams in the Essex League but there will also be dedicated training and matches for under 12 players and specifically those at local primary schools.

Swifts Chairman Paul May said "the move last season to Woodlands provided huge benefits for the club.  The school, and specifically the Head Teacher, are entirely supportive of what the club is seeking to do.  Obviously we are an outlet for pupils from the school but we have already made inroads into the local community particularly with our primary school sessions.  We are doubling this provision, with training for under 12s on both Tuesdays and Fridays between 5 and 7 pm.

Additionally, there will be the opportunity for adults to start, or re-start, playing basketball.  These will be held on Friday evenings when there are no second team men's matches."
