Welcome to the website of

Tonyrefail Tigers Basketball Club

 

About Us 

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 in 2008 the Tigers U/14 Girls team won the South Wales Basketball Association Girls Cup.

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.

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 is now back in action preparing for the 2021-2022 season and currently boasts more than 85 junior members across its U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U16 and U18 teams. In addition the club is busy recruiting former players to put together a Senior team for the coming season.
