Bromsgrove Bears Basketball Club

Longbridge, Birmingham

Bromsgrove Bears Basketball Club was formed in 2010 when sisters Dawn and Carys Hall decided that there needed to be more basketball accessible to all ages and genders throughout the Bromsgrove area and beyond. The club’s aims were simple: ‘to get more people playing basketball and to improve the overall standard of basketball players in the area.’

Bromsgrove Bears has always developed its players giving them the skills and knowledge to progress within their basketball career. With our strong coaching staff, with more than 90 years of experience between them, we are producing strong players, some of whom have played for England, with others progressing to Europe and the United States as a result.

During the mid 2000’s the club focused on younger junior age groups within the YBL, winning titles at U13, U19 and Development Women.
In 2019 Bromsgrove Bears was re-constituted and with unprecedented growth was able to field six teams ranging from U9 to both Senior Men and Women’s. The club had a very successful season developing many new players as well as welcoming back players from the previous season and indeed some who had played for the bears in the early years. The season was unfortunately cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic with teams well placed to make the play offs as well as the women having progressed to the finals of the cup competition.
For 2020 we again are growing the club, with new coaches joining our existing established group we are once again able to field 6 teams in the YBL and a further 4 teams in Basketball England’s National League.

Our plans include developing players talents in both their playing and understanding of the sport for some to become table officials & referees along with some senior players to become the coaches of the future.

Bromsgrove Bears prides itself on being a family friendly club staying true to the aims we had from the beginning of developing players skills, talents & knowledge of Basketball ‘to be the best they can be’.
