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

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.

In February 2020, the Clubs U18 Mens team reached the final of the SWBA U18 Cup.

After the two long lockdowns between March 2020 and July 2021 due to the Covid pandemic, the club returned to action in the 2021-2022 season with more than 85  members across its U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U16 and U18 also Senior teams.
