To support our players during the uncertain times the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to us individually and as an organisation.

Why are we fundraising

Thames Valley Cavaliers (TVC) Women's Basketball team is a self-funded team of 12-15 girls, meaning that each player pays to play. There are many expenses included (such as court hire, coach, referees & officials per game, transportation to away games, etc) which have been forecasted to total at around £8,000 over the entire season.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of UK residents - including our players, meaning we have players on furlough, in school, and not in the safest financial position to afford to play basketball. We value the wellbeing of all of our players and supporters and understand that basketball is a great outlet for the stresses of everyday life, so it would be a great shame that our women lose this outlet due to the stressful and uncertain times we are living in.

About us

TVC is committed to being a major player in the transformation of basketball in Britain. Our objective is to compete in the Elite Basketball League, with teams that:

  • Are economically viable
  • Consistently challenges for league championships
  • Drives positive awareness of well-being and sport throughout the community and the GB.

To grow our community appeal and to increase opportunity & female representation at a high level, we commenced a Women’s Basketball team in 2018-19 (D2) and achieved our objective to gain promotion and compete at the top women’s Basketball England Division from the 2019-20 season (D1).

Our women's team provides the opportunity for all women alike - whether professional full-timers, secondary/college/university students, mothers, etc. - to play at a high level across the UK. It also provides role models to the young female athletes we coach on a weekly basis.
