The team comprising current and former students from University of South Wales at Treforest, and coached by Dave, with Katie as an assistant coach and player, went through the season losing only one league match (against Swansea Uni Storm) which set them up with the league decider against Butetown Dragons. Details of the game are under the Fixtures and Results tab and photos are on the Photo Gallery tab.


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.

Tigers players on Welsh duty.
Jul 5, 2016, 9:48 pm

There was a great festival of basketball at the Surrey sports park last weekend, as the English Basketball Association held their inter regional tournament, and invited the Welsh junior squads to participate. Three Tigers players were involved in the Welsh squads.

On Saturday Ben Evans played for the Welsh U14's who were playing up in age against U15 teams from Surrey, Sussex, Herts and Kent.... Unfortunately the Welsh team played 3 and lost 3 but they certainly did themselves proud and battled hard against much bigger sides.

On Sunday morning Jacob Gibbons played for the Welsh U11's who lost to Surrey & Sussex but came away with a win against Kent.... This resulted in the U11’s finishing in third place.

Also on Sunday Ben Evans and Dewi Hobbs played for the Welsh U13's, who won 3 of their games against Surrey (22-14), Kent (32-14), Sussex (24-18) but unfortunately lost their last game in a tense encounter to Herts by a single point 17-18. However even though they were tied 3 wins each with Surrey, the Welsh team were winners of the tournament by fact that they beat Surrey in their first game.

Well done to our 3 Tigers players, but also all their team mates who once again were a credit to their Country....
