What its all about

Islington Panthers Basketball Club was the brainchild of Guy Lawrence, a senior youth worker in Islington. He initially wanted to set up a football club, but soon realised that a real uncultivated interest of young people was to play basketball. At that time, in 2002 there were no basketball clubs where young people could play basketball for FREE. Thanks to his vision and hard work, we now have a thriving club serving the young people in the borough, with a full committee managing the club.

The club trains young men under 12s, under 14s, under 16s and under 21s and a ladies team who have the opportunity to compete in national and local leagues. The club is relatively young, and is growing every year; striving to develop our players to their full potential. With the onset of the 2012 Olympics, and government’s new drive to increase participation in sport and make the UK a ‘leading sporting nation’; the club is committed to help reach that target.
