Welcome To The Website Of Tonyrefail Tigers Basketball Club

The Club was formed primarily to give young people in the Tonyrefail and surrounding area an opportunity to play basketball in a fun and safe environment.

The club is affiliated to Basketball Wales (the national governing body for basketball in Wales) and competes in the South Wales League and Cup competitions. 

In their first season of competition Tigers U/14 Girls team won the South Wales Valleys Girls Cup and the club has gone from strength to strength currently boasting over 40  members across its U/10, U/12, U/14, U/16 and U18 age groups.

In 2012 our U/12 team also reached the South Wales Cup Final, and in seasons 2013 and again in 2014 our U/10 team won the South Wales Cup, whilst in 2015 they were runners up at that age group.  

In 2017 the Club won the inaugural SWBA Womens league with a team comprising current and former students of USW Treforest and are looking to build on that link with USW over coming seasons.  

Club night is every Monday night at Tonyrefail Leisure Centre:

5pm till 6pm for U/10, U/12 and U14 age groups.

6pm till 7pm for U/16 and U/18 age groups.

We also run Friday night sessions at Tonyrefail Leisure Centre as follows:-

6pm till 7pm U/12 and U/14 age groups *
7pm till 8pm U/16 and U/18 age groups *

*Friday night sessions are dependent on whether there is a U16 or U18 league fixture that night. Click on the Fixtures and Results tab to check if there is a match or training.

New players are always made if you are interested in joining one of the Clubs teams then just come along on a Monday at the time appropriate to your age and we will be very happy to see you !!!!!!!

In addition the Club is keen to recruit anyone who has previous experience of playing and or coaching basketball, and who feel they may be able to assist with the Clubs coaching program. For the right person, opportunities exist for attaining coaching qualifications through the Club.

Tigers U18 lose Cup Final
Feb 16, 2020, 11:31 pm

The Tigers U18 team lost their SWBA Cup Final match to Cardiff Archers U18 last Sunday at the Llandarcy Centre for Sport in Neath. It was a tough match for the Tigers who were  overpowered by the big and experienced Archers team, who have not lost a game in Wales this season and who also play every week in the English Premier U18 Division. Still it was a big achievement for a small club like ours to reach the Final and we are proud of the players and coach Tony Berry for their efforts.
