Following on from a very successful summer of Ball 4 All CIC basketball activities in August 2015 and by popular demandRutland Thunderswas launched on 19th December 2015.
John Smith is the coach and he is hoping to get Rutland youngsters taking part in regional and national competitions as well as if possible competing in some of the European tournaments.
In 2017/2018 John and his valued team of coaches, parents and supporters took the U14's, U16's and U18's teams through an entire season of national basketball with the 'Basketball England' League (East Midlands). We were so proud of the players and their ability to gain strength, skills and a better understanding of the game based on their experiences throughout the season. We are looking forward to 2018/2019.
The 2018/2019 season has seen the Rutland Thunders go from strength to strength under the individual coaching of John and Chris, who have lead all of our teams to more victories than last year.
