Bromley Basketball Club is the only competitive basketball club in the London Borough of Bromley.
The club gained popularity shortly after its inception playing in the Kent County before moving to play in the South Thames Basketball League. As the years went by Bromley’s success in both leagues saw them make the jump in the late 70s to competing in the National League after winning the National 100 Cup (present day Founders Cup).
Since 2013, Bromley Basketball Club has been progressively changing with the introduction of the club nickname ‘Fury’. Giving the club a new edge and the start of a new era with new players and a more focussed regime. Both teams at the club were renamed; Bromley Fury I and Bromley Fury II. The nickname was created at Caister Festival of Basketball 2014 where players were told to “bring the fury” during tournament games.
The club celebrated its 60th Anniversary (in June 2016), making it one of the oldest clubs in the country. The celebrations saw members from past and present come together to wish the club a happy birthday.
Since 2016, the club has vastly expanded with the addition of a third senior men’s team, now the Vets team and a move to an excellent double court venue. The bigger capacity venue saw the introduction of the club’s junior programme in 2018, welcoming over 100 new members through its doors! A year on and Bromley Basketball Club are back in the National League setup with an Under-18 men’s team, playing out of South Conference III.
The club has a bright future ahead with its priority to increase basketball participation levels throughout the London Borough of Bromley and surrounding areas.
