ABOUT THE CLUB...
East Herts Royals Basketball Club have become the powerhouse of club basketball in East Hertfordshire and was launched in September 2014 after the two clubs, Ware Rebels and Stevenage Scorpions combined. The club is committed to developing youth basketball in Hertfordshire.
The club has a training venue in Stevenage and will have the use of fantastic facilities in Marriott's School Leisure Centre. We will be fielding teams from Under 12's all the way through to Men’s basketball.
East Herts Royals is a venture with former National League Clubs 'Ware Rebels' and 'Stevenage Scorpions' merging together, providing a top-class environment both on and off the court for all of its members.
With both of these former clubs having a history of success, both having the same philosophy in providing the best opportunities and training for the younger players in East Hertfordshire, this move will make East Herts Royals the club for any serious basketball player. The management committee and coaching staff from Ware and Stevenage will combine to add quality and depth into this new programme.
East Herts Royals received over 100 members in its first season. This year seven teams have been entered into either National or Community Basketball League competitions. The club has received lots of interest from junior players in and around the area, as well as receiving enquiries from East of England and County players!
East Herts Royals teams for the 2020/21 season:
U11 - Harlow Junior Central Venue League
U12 - National League
U14 B - Harlow Central Venue League
U14 A - Harlow Central Venue League
U16 - National League Conference
