Welcome to the home of the Horsham Hawks, U12 and U13 Sussex Cup champions
January Blues Shaken at the Hawks Quiz Night
A huge thank you to all of those who came along to the Quiz Night. The general noise level and amount of food consumed is testament to you all having a good time, and equally importantly raising a massive £375 for the Hawks. Thank you for you generosity and for sticking with the obscure questions. Congratulations to the victorious Fursty Ferrets
Calling all Mini Ballers
Saturdays, 4.15-5.45, at Forest School.
Aged 6 to 11? Want to play a little Basketball? Then join us at our mini ballers sessions. We don't mind if you have never played before as long as you want to come along, work hard and most importantly have fun. The session costs £5 and doors open at 4.15 with the fun finishing at 5.45. The session is run by qualified level two coaches who hope you will love the game as much as they do. Our mini's will compete in tournaments and
local friendly games.
Please wear proper sports gear and bring plenty of drinking water.
After attending 3 Mini Ballers sessions we ask that you become a Hawks registered member. This covers court insurance, registration with England Basketball and a rather fetching t-shirt featuring Sussex's premier basketball club*. Membership is £20. See details in our membership section where you can download a membership form.
if you have any questions please contact Will who will be happy to help.
Playing for Hawks
If you were interested in playing for our U13, U14 and U16 local league teams but were unable to make our trials please contact Will who will put you in contact with the relevant coaching staff.
2015-16 season was a huge success with our U12s and U13s both crowned
Sussex Cup Champions. The 2016-17 season will be on us soon and we want
you to come along and be part of the fun.
Table officials and referees
The hawks are always looking for new table officials and referees. Regular courses are run to give you the skills to either table a game of even referee a match (you could also earn a little pocket money as well). If you are interested in helping us in any way please contact Will.
Hawk's end of season bash
After a spectacular season the hawks came together for one last event, the End of Season Bash. Thank you one and all for an amaxing season.
Hawks Josh Lea Clayton and Josh Tavolieri have both made it through to the South East region squad. Well deserved guys. Elsewhere Zach Holden and Miguel Venturini made it through to the Sussex boys squad whilst Rachel Maclean matched them with a place in the Sussex girls squad.
Super Sunday for a duo of trios
Sunday 17 April will be remembered as a very special day as the Hawks 'represented' at two major competitions. First to strike were Josh, Miguel and Zach. Their National League team, the U12 Sussex Bears, were crowned Central Hoops Basketball League Champions. It was a very early start in London for the team, coaches and the parents. The team, the coaches and their families did this journey to London on several such Sundays throughout the season. After many games the top 4 teams battled for the top spot. It was very tense and tough but such a joy to watch these young kids play a high quality basketball on the court. The atmosphere was amazing all the way through.
Having won their semi-final v Baltic Stars, they had a 20 minute break to rest and then played their final v Newham Youngbloods. They won 55:53 and Miguel was rewarded with one of the MVP awards. Boys, we are very proud of you. You have done an AMAZING job.
Else where Millie, Ellie and Indi played in their National League semi final. The trip oop north to Manchester (Bury to be precise) was well worth the trip as the three helped secure the U16 Sevenoaks Suns a place in the final. A trip to the Armaechi Basketball Centre in May against Bristol Storm lays ahead. Their 38 -41 win against a tough Lancashire Spinners team was hard fought as the lead changed hands throughout the tie. With two minutes left the score was tied, but it was the Suns who finished the stronger. Well done girls and assistant coach Dave Clayton for an amazing game of ball.
Calling all female basketballers (over 16 yrs of age, so not all at all)
Hawks is a great way into basketball for the junior members of the family, but we also have strong ties with Horshams Ladies basketball club, the Allstars. If you are 16 or above, female and interested in playing basketball please let Will know. Experience isn't necessary, just a desire to play hard, have fun and get fit.
Email email@example.com if you are interested.

Hawks strike out
Three lanes, 18 names, 1 strike and a spare. Bowling at it's finest. Who would have known that the management would be so anti dunking...
Just couldn't resist the basketball. For more photos see the Hawks pictures in the sub nav <<.
