Players from across our 5 hubs will be battling it out for the CBL Trophy! The five Hubs are Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham, Horley and Haywards Heath. If you aren’t from one of these towns but want to get involved reach out to us and we will inform you of your closet session! Info here: https://stormbasketballclub.com/training-times/
Players sign up as individuals and are placed on a team – this can be based on friendship groups, schoolmates, or building teams to be as balanced as possible across the league.
When signing up for SBL, players receive a personalised navy blue Storm kit, along with a grey alternate SBL vest.
