About Northampton Falcons Basketball Club
Northampton Falcons were formed in 2014 by a small group of players who enjoyed playing basketball just for fun and to help improve fitness. Despite the numbers of players turning up to each session growing hugely over the years we like to keep that policy at the heart of our game.
We organise friendly matches throughout the year with other local teams and have taken part in the Northants Summer League for the first time in 2016. With numbers increased and a number of new experienced players we have now entered a team in the 2017/18 Northants Basketball League.
There is no barrier of entry, if you want to play – you play, we have some closed squad sessions but the majority of sessions are open to everyone! Each week we also run a scrimmage session so if you don't feel you are ready to play against other teams these sessions are great fun and include a diverse range of players.
Sessions are currently 2 hours long and are £4 for under 18's, £5 for those who pay for 4+ sessions in one go and £6 to turn up and play. We currently aim to play every Monday, 8-9pm at Kingsthorpe College however it is worth getting in touch beforehand via our Facebook page or email to ensure that the time and venue hasn't changed due to the court being used for exams etc. Squad training is usually held on a Thursday.
Some of our players started with us with zero experience of basketball and others have played for year, there's also a wide range of ages and fitness levels! We just ask you give it your 100%! We do not currently run any under 18 specific teams, our youngest members are currently 17 but the average age is 25-35.
Northampton Falcons have 3 level 2 and one Level 1 Basketball Coaches who run the sessions each week between them. If you are interested on bringing your skills up or are new to the game these coaches along with other players are happy to offer advice and coaching during the sessions.
