Basketball has a long tradition at Bayfield and is our largest sport. It is enjoyed with enthusiasm by players. Teams are assembled from Y 2-6.

The children's passion for basketball sees them practising voluntarily at school most days.  Teams work together to carpool and organise coaching.

Harbour Basketball offers a large number of activities and programmes of excellent quality providing a pathway for every basketballer to realise his or her ambition'
