We are a group of friendly people who play basketball regularly. The club caters for both competitive and social players and we have achieved this by running separate sessions for competitive and social players. We have had players as young as 15 and as experienced as 75! So do not hesitate to try one of our sessions as the Raptors senior basketball club is open to players of all ages and abilities.
