Worthing Thunder set to join BBL

Worthing Thunder

Worthing Thunder have been given permission to compete in the British Basketball League (BBL) next season.

The club has enjoyed success since it was formed 1999, winning back-to-back EBL division one titles and competing well in the National Cup and Trophy.

BBL chief operations officer Andy Webb said: "Worthing are a strong addition to the BBL. They have a record of success at senior and junior levels."

Thunder finished third in EBL division one this season.

Frank Gainsbury, Worthing Thunder's chairman, said: "The club has made great strides since its formation nine years ago.

"And the continued successes achieved during this time in the EBL have provided a solid basis for progression into the top basketball league in the UK."
