Eastleigh Hot Shots Basketball Club provides regular physical exercise, competitive opportunities, personal challenges and fun for a group of adults with learning disabilities through basketball.
Suitable for all abilities, it is a great place to get fit and have fun. Come along and join us.
We have been running the basketball club since 2014 when the Council’s financial support was withdrawn.
Sessions last for one hour, take place once a fortnight, in Fair Oak on Saturday morning. The cost is £4.00 per session. Contact Michelle if you would like to try a session of basketball. Leave your name and phone number on our office voice mail. (023 8048 3471)
"A big Thank You to Magic Little Grants which has provided a grant to employ our basketball coach for one year. Magic Little Grants are administered by Localgiving and the Postcode Community Trust"
Michelle, May 2019
We were delighted to find that our player numbers at the first Eastleigh Hot Shots (basketball club) session in January were nearly doubled. This is a brilliant opportunity to get some exercise, improve your movement and co-ordination whilst having fun.
The sessions are held on alternate Saturdays, starting at 10.00am for an hour. All abilities are welcome and we love absolute beginners! Just wear loose clothes, trainers and bring a water bottle and subs (£4). We guarantee a good time.
Basketball practice at Wyvern Sports Hall
At each session, members practice their throwing, catching and dribbling skills. They all take turns in shooting and support and encourage each other. They take part in a number of short drills and then spend the final 25 minutes playing a game. The teams change each week but there is great camaraderie and people are given encouragement for their efforts.
