Pleasance Basketball Club est 1947

Season 2023/24

The upcoming season starts 1st September, time to get ready to play!


Pleasance will no longer enter a LBA Division 2 team (Pace) for this season. We have had this second team for 10+ years and perhaps we will see it resurrected in future.

Our Masters / Senior team, previously named 47s, are merging with Polonia Phoenix Masters to help them better prepare for Master's tournaments. Thanks to our older members, some of who have been with us for 40+ years!
