18th July 2013 - The Summer Holidays Are Coming


Dear Parent/Guardian/Member,


The Summer Holidays are a-coming!


YMCA Torbay Tigers have, in previous years, run all sessions right through till mid- August, taking a break of two weeks and reopening the first week in September.  Recently there has been a low take-up particularly among the younger age groups at holiday times.


As we are all volunteer staff this is very disappointing for us when numbers attending can be so low, or even none. In consideration of this we feel we need to stop the 6 – 7.30 pm sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays at  the YMCA. Thursday 25th July will be the last early session resuming Tuesday 10th September when the School term has started.


Sessions at The Hub on Wednesdays, 7-8 and 8-9 pm, will continue, and as there seems to be the demand, the 7.30 – 9 pm sessions for teenagers on Thursdays at the YMCA will continue.


Older members of the younger sessions are welcome to come to the 7.30 – 9 pm Thursday session at the YMCA if they can cope with the stronger nature of this older group, but please discuss this with the coaches before turning up to play at this session.

Enjoy the summer break, and we look forward to seeing you all again in September.


Chris, and all your volunteer coaches and admin staff.



7th May 2013 - Torbay Tigers Inter-Club Tournament


Dear Torbay Tigers Member


The club is organising an end of season club day to include an Inter Torbay Tigers Basketball Competition to be held at Churston School on Saturday 29th June 2013.


Further details about the timing for the event will be announced closer to the date. But is is currently envisaged that the tournament will likely run between 2:00-5:00pm.


This will include:

  • Under 14s and hot shot competitions for friends and family in the Sports Gym.
  • A round robin tournament with mixed teams made up from the U16s, Seniors, Veterans and Coaches to be played in the main Sports Hall.

The club would like as many people as possible to attend the event to include players, family and friends. 


To allow the day to run as smoothly as possible we would appreciate your commitment and confirmation at the earliest opportunity by expressing your interest in joining the event by emailing info@torbaytigers.co.uk


This will then allow the event organisers to arrange adequate refreshments, organise teams and arrange a format for the day.


The idea behind this event is:

  • To get the whole club together under one roof for a day.
  • To organise a fun day of basketball.
  • To allow all sections within the club to mix together in a single event.
  • To raise funds for the club.
  • To make this event an annual fixture.

We will be organising a raffle to help raise funds for the club and we hope you will all be able to jump on board and help sell the tickets at the earliest opportunity.


For further information and to obtain raffle tickets please contact Geoff & Kim Bates, Chris Mackey, Mike & Michelle Presneill and Richard Skitch or email raffletickets@torbaytigers.co.uk


Please remember to confirm your attendance ASAP to info@torbaytigers.co.uk
