Portsmouth’s Fury Basketball are en route for a historic Solent Men’s Senior cup victory.
This comes after a convincing 100-34 win over the Winchester Royals B, taking them through to the
Fury will travel to Bournemouth for their semi-final bout against The Bears.
But things have not gone so well for the team in the Men’s Division 1 League.
Founding member Andrew Goodale explained: ‘We’ve got a really good team, but we’ve lost too many games this season to win the league’.
‘But If we could get to win the cup this year, that would be a really successful season’.
Andrew says the team’s success is down to the fine line between completion and fun.
He believes the team has a real sense of community and togetherness that helps them perform in matches.
‘It really is a community of friends with a common interest of basketball”, he says.
“We’ve got an Italian guy, a Slovakian guy, a Greek Guy, two players from the Cayman Islands and Africa, everyone has become part of this community”.
The team hold trials in the autumn for anyone interested in playing basketball.
If you want to watch the Fury in action, home games are usually on Wednesdays at 8:30 at Portsmouth Grammar School PO1 2LN.
