Bedford Thunder is a community club that aims to promote and develop basketball both within the local and wider Bedfordshire community.

Our aim is to encourage excellence in everything we do while at the same time maintaining a welcoming and inclusive club ethos.

We currently have two Men's teams, open to anyone 16 upwards. We train on Tuesdays 19:45-21:45. These sessions are run by Basketball England qualified coaches and are team based practices focusing on game plays and strategies.

We are now in our fourth season in the Herts Premier League. We have 2 teams entered; one in the 1st division and one in the 2nd division.


If you're interested in joining us, we recommend you come down to one of our training session on Tuesday evening. Best to send us a message first so that we can answer any of your questions. You can train with us to see if we are a fit for you - completely free.

If you want to join, all the details are on our membership page.

If you have any questions, please send us a message.


We also offer an open scrimmage on Sundays 16:30-18:00 at Bedford Academy. Being a community-focused club means we welcome those of all ability and experience levels, whether you're a seasoned vet playing at a high level, you've never bounced a ball before, or somewhere in between.
