The Taunton Tigers are a National League Basketball club in the heart of Somerset and the South West that has been running for over 2 decades and has come a long way since its humble beginings. The club is the backbone of basketball in Taunton, providing coaching and opportunitys for young players to develop as well as providing a high standard of basketball for senior players in the area.
Our focus is very much on developing players at the grass roots level to enable them to be successful in the future wherever they may be. Tigers currently have 6 different teams, providing opportunites to play at many different ages and levels. We have a strong relationship with the community which we promote by running different events such as basketball camps and tournaments. In 2010 the club was successful in its bid for charity status.
The club is run by a large number of volunteers, who perform various roles that are vital to the continued running and professionalism that we strive for. From game day staff, setting up, clearing away, collecting tickets, recording stats, commentating, to all the people behind the scenes, securing sponsorship, organising fixtures, driving minibuses to away games, planning fund raisers, socials and doing many many small things which all benefit the club.
We are always open to any suggestions on how we can improve and are always on the look out for willing volunteers. If you think you have something to offer please let us know, we would love to hear from you.
