Our Basketball Club, the Eastleigh Hot
Shots meets on alternate Saturday mornings at Wyvern Community College from 10.00 to 11.00am.
Suitable for all abilities, it is a great place to get fit and have fun. Come along and join us.
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.
Alan Cunningham is a hugely inspiring and energetic man with great experience of working with vulnerable groups of people. His sessions are dynamic, challenging but also enormous fun for the participants.
New members from the Borough of Eastleigh or from Romsey are welcome but should contact the EBR MENCAP office for details of times.
In May 2014 we took over the running of The Basketball Club that had been funded by EDLAG for the past ten years. The Club meets once a fortnight on alternate Saturdays to the Walking Group
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.
