Good times for basketball club

Words and photos by Dave Barry

A basketball club is going from strength to strength.

Scarborough Seahawks have been based at Pindar Leisure Centre in Eastfield for over 15 years.

The club evolved from two others: Ryedale Rockets in the 90s and Raincliffe School Basketball Club in the 80s.

It runs a scrimmage session from 6-7.30pm every Sunday for over 16s who have some experience of playing before. It costs £5. It is a mixed session and new players are welcome.

A Junior Hawks session runs from 6-7.30pm on Fridays during school terms. It is for children aged 6-16 who are interested in learning how to play basketball. It costs £3.

The Seahawks are going to enter a senior men's team into the Humber basketball league this season and want to recruit new players.

Squad training usually takes place at the Sixth Form College on Thursdays from 7.15-8.45pm during term time.
