Bedford Thunder is a community team and also wants to support and encourage basketball development throughout Bedfordshire.
We currently have a mixed Junior team called the Bedford Thunder Youth which caters for both male and female players between 3 and 18 years old. The Thunder Youth train on Sundays during term time (inlcuding half term weeks) at Bedford Academy with the session split into various groups:
