The 1213 season is drawing to a close, with the last Nailsea Basketball season game on Monday 15th April, away at Totterdown Tigers. Season training finishes on Wednesday 24th April with a 1 hour session at Nailsea School (7.30 - 8.30pm) followed by a few end of season drinks in Nailsea to celebrate.
We then have more casual 1 hour training booked throughout the summer (May, June, July) which is an ideal chance to keep fit and active. This is also a good chance for anyone who is interested in joining the club to come along and play, please get in touch via the website for details. Summer training will be on Wednesday nights at Nailsea School, 8 - 9pm
The committee had provisionally arranged this but it seems we never actually posted up about it, sorry!
Team AGM is next week on Wednesday 4th July before the usual training session. Meet at Nailsea school in time for 7pm start and we will go and sit in the small cafe /juice bar down the corridor as you go in. Then usual training and shoot around after from 8 - 9pm
