OUR AIMS

FOCUS ON FITNESS

Maybe you used to shoot hoops at school but fell out of practice… since then you’ve acquired a beer belly and a mortgage? Now’s your chance to get from the couch, to the court. We don’t prejudice on your fitness or abilities but with two, one and a half hour sessions a week, you’ll be sweating in no time!

AFFORDABLE

Access to great basketball doesn’t have to cost the earth, so we keep costs as low as possible. Membership is as low as £3 a session… but we don’t cut corners on our equipment and coaching! Membership includes two, one and a half hour sessions a week run by our brilliant coaches with game spec balls and hoops.

SOCIAL & COMMUNITY

Meet new people and help grow community sport in Bristol! We don’t just meet up on the court, we’re a social bunch and arrange socials as often as possible. We might head out to watch some BBL action courtesy of our own Bristol Flyers, or just re-stock on carbs at an all-you-can-eat.

About Us

Maybe you used to shoot hoops at school but fell out of practice… since then you’ve acquired a beer belly and a mortgage? Perhaps you always wanted to play basketball but couldn’t work out the rules... maybe you just need an excuse for something to do on a Monday or Tuesday Evening? If any of this sounds familiar it’s time to come and train with Bristol’s least serious sporting outfit: Bristol Benchwarmers Basketball Club. We welcome men and women, as long as you're 18+. From the couch... to the court, we aim to get you back into playing Basketball in Bristol as soon as possible! We offer two different training days along with a mixed session on Sunday, all with at least one coach to keep your skills up to scratch in a fun, inclusive environment. Your first few sessions are free, and then the monthly membership is quick to set up and considerably cheaper than any gym you'll find (we'll even throw in a free t-shirt)! If you are interested in coming to a session please get in touch via our Contact Us page first and we'll give you all the details you need.

The choice of sessions are Monday (19:30 – 21:00) or Tuesday (18:00 – 19:30). We then offer a Sunday session (09:30am – 11:00am) to anyone who is part of the Monday or Tuesday sessions. All this happens at The Park Sports Centre in Knowle (BS4 1DQ)

As long as you’re 18+, you’re welcome to join!

Membership is paid for monthly at a price of £22.50. This gives you access to every Monday or Tuesday session as well as any Sunday session.

Sessions are an hour and a half and we normally split that into coached drills and then a game. 

Sorry, we’re an adults only club. Take a look at the other great work Bristol Sport Foundation are involved with here: https://www.bristolflyers.co.uk/community/
