COMMUNITY & SCHOOLS 

Basketball is the fastest growing sport in the world and the most popular sport, after football. Part of our vision at the Suns is to make this wonderful sport accessible to every child in the Southeast. To achieve this ambitious goal, the Suns run a series of school programs and development initiatives within the wider community.
The Sevenoaks Suns have a strong bond with the local communities in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, and Royal Tunbridge Wells. We run multiple weekly development sessions in each of these communities where more than 200 kids have fun while learning and playing, in a safe (and weatherproof!) environment.
Our qualified coaches help schools to provide proper basketball education to their students. We run both curricular and extra-curricular programmes at primary and secondary schools. For the last 15 years, we have taught basketball to 1000s of kids, in more than 25 schools.

Suns players and coaches have hundreds of appearances as players and coaches on national teams (both England and GB). Our Women’s British Basketball League Team are, for the third consecutive year, British national champions.  We offer visits from our WBBL and national Team players  at school assemblies and other events.  These events can be powerful motivational tools.  Since many of these players have played and studied abroad, they bring a breadth of experience which many kids find most engaging.   
  • PRIMARY SCHOOL & LOCAL TOURNAMENTS

    The Suns organize and support primary school tournaments open to any primary school wishing to take part. Students are usually thrilled! If you wish to participate in a school tournament please let us know.
    We also organize monthly tournaments for primary school-aged children on Saturdays. Participation is open for non-members, too.
     
    We usually announce the tournaments via our Facebook platform or our Newsletter.
  • HOLIDAY CAMPS

     
     
    During the school holidays, we run Basketball Camps where children of all abilities can come and benefit from the coaching of our professional coaches with vast experience in the sport and youth development including the WBBL Coach of the year Len Busch.
     
    The children will be taken through their pace, stretching their abilities and getting the best out of them as a person and a team player
    If you like to find more about our camps please follow our Facebook page or sign up for our Newsletter (it is free)
