Welcome to the home of the Horsham Hawks, season 2014/15
Trials - your chance to be part of the best club in Sussex*
The Hawks will be running trials for our 4 teams on Saturdays 5th and 12th September at Forest School. We intend to run U12, U13, U16 and U18 teams this coming season. Don't worry if you can't make both of these trial dates.
U12s, U13s - 2.00 pm until 3.30 pm
U16s, U18s - 3.30 pm until 5.00 pm
Bring correct sports wear and plenty of water.
The trials will be £5 per session. If you have any questions please contact Will at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We intend to have our AGM on September 6 of this year. All things Hawk shaped will be discussed and as always the committee roles are open for nomination. We will be particularly looking to fill the roles of Secretary and Match Co-ordinator. You can read more about the roles by clicking on the 'AGM, reports & club charter' link to the left.
The AGM is at 7.30 at the Scout Hall, 53 Billingshurst Rd, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, West Sussex RH12 3L.
Please come along.
Hawk's end of season bash
Another year has flown by and has finished with the annual end of season event, full of basketball and awards. Thanks for all making it a great season, and here's looking forward to next season (after a well deserved summer break)
Family quiz night - POSTPONED
The quiz night planned for 23rd May has been postponed due to reasons beyond our control (It clashed with the Eurovision song contest). A new date will follow shortly.
When it does happen it will follow the following format:Maximum of 8 members per team, it should be ideal for all ages-ish (our u11s and up) with a mixture of quiz and hands on challenges.
Hawks will be running a family quiz night. Held at St Marks, think Crystal Maze without the expensive sets or bald host (erm).
Under 18s £3, over 18s £5. Please get your team names and team captains to email@example.com
Nibbles and drinks are to be supplied by combatants. Please pay on the door. If people are looking for a team we can create a super group. All profits are to be shared equally between the Hawks and a Guiding service trip to Vietnam, helping two centres for disabled children.
Will the kids beat the adults? Will the kids be prepared to have an adult in their team. One way to find out...
U11s - Champions
Hawks U11s concluded their season with an impressive cup final victory against Crawley Cagers. Slow to start the Hawks regained their composure running out 69 48 winners. More impressive with just 8 on the bench.
Else where in Europe
Hawk's own Josh Lea-Clayton made the trip to Gothenburg with the NTS Suns.
It's the first time in 36 years an English team has won a trophy at the
Gothenburg Basketball Festival. Beating an Icelandic team in the semi they came from 9-1
down to beat a Swedish team in the final.
If you look carefully you can just about make out the trophy.
There, but for two years, go I
Our U14s stepped into the void generated by the U12s opposition no show on Tuesday. Featuring a first for the Hawks, the report can be found in our reports section.
U12s versus the parents
Saturday 25th April saw the first U12s vs parents match, held with full pomp at Forest School. The result was irrelevant (ok, the U12s won) (comfortably), but fun was had by all. The parents WILL be back.
Hawks bingo extravaganza
Well didn't this go well. A HUGE crowd of eager dobbers (is that the phrase?) greeted the Hawks first bingo night. An impressive £320.20 was raised from all the fun and refreshments. A huge thank you to all involved especially Nicky Rose, Sarah Maclean, Marie Lea Clayton, with Janine Venturini, Hayley Rose, Rachel Maclean on refreshments and our host with the least Nick Probin.
Thank you also to our kind and generous sponsors:
• Ceramic Shack, Horsham
• Cocoa Loco
• Deep Blue Fish and Chips
• Flaming Grill at the Sussex Barn
• Studio 2 hair
• Sugar and Snow

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 <<.
16 December 2014 - date to remember
night remembered not only for the Hawk's U16's second victory of the
2014/15 season, but for the first recorded dunk for a Hawk's player. See
if you can identify the premier dunker from the team pic below. Clue:
It's not the coach doing an impression of a teapot and is Harry Baker.
* In the opinion of those pained souls responsible for a lot of this dribble
