London Thunder Basketball
London Thunder Basketball was established in September 2007. The Director of Coaching is Steve Bucknall, the first Englishmen to play in the NBA for the LA Lakers.
Since inception Thunder has achieved a membership of over 200 registered players and the development over 6 national league teams including junior and senior wheelchair teams, male and female local league teams plus Central Venue League teams of various age groups.
The Thunder have been in their current location since July 2014, purchasing a reclaimed Junckers sports floor. Since then the floor has been subject to heavy use and was in need of repairs in certain areas to bring the playing surface back up to the required standard.
The floor was repaired as required, full sanded, re-lined and finished with Junckers HP Sport lacquer. The 1,000m2 hall was fully refurbished in a week to minimise down time.
