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, and U/16 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 and U/12 age groups.

6pm till 7pm for U/14 and U/16 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 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 welcome....so 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.

Tonyrefail Leisure Centre refurbishment
Jan 26, 2017, 11:54 pm

Tonyrefail Leisure Cente is undergoing a major refurbishment which results in us losing half the basketball court for the next three months. 

There are no other courts in the Tonyrefail area that we can use instead so please bear with us and continue to turn up to training with the Club.

The three months will soon pass and then we will be back to normal and will be able to train and play on a full court again.
