 Barrow Thorns Junior Basketball Club.

Hoops Basketball Centre is the home of Barrow Thorns Junior Basketball Club.  The club itself was born in 1976 with players from Thorncliffe School.  The club moved to Hoops on it's completion in 1998 built with funding from the National Lottery.

Since 1976, Thorns have competed at every level in junior basketball.  For the forthcoming 2014/15 season, we will have 3 teams competing in England Basketball National leagues.  We have U15 Boys,  U14 and U16 Girls..  Essentially we are a junior club although we have a mens team competing in the newly formed Northern League (ex Cumbria League) providing an outlet for our junior players who wish to continue playing past the age of 18. 

Thorns and the Hoops Centre are actively involved in promoting basketball in South Cumbria - running several different programmes and leagues for players in school years 3 to 12.  

According to the latest England Basketball Annual report, Barrow Thorns are ranked 10th in England in terms of club membership.  We hold the Clubmark award and are very proud to be an England Basketball 4 Star rated club.

We invite you to browse our site, check out the teams and their fixtures.  We welcome spectators on game days and entry is free.  Come along, support your town team and watch some great games.
