East Brighton get into basketball programme:
Thanks to funding provided by the Sussex Community Foundation in 2016-2017, The CBI was able to deliver a unique programme to get young people in East Brighton active and involved in basketball.
This programme allowed the CBI to create a new group which has reached hundreds of local young (and not so young) people. Our offer now includes regular sessions for 8 to 14 year olds as well as regular event for 14 to 18s and 18+.
Since 2014, the CBI partners with East Brighton's community sport centre; "The Manor road gym", to get closer and reach out to the local community as well as provide adapted activities for target groups.
Thanks to funding and collaboration provided by the Sussex Community Foundation, the East Brighton Trust and Due East, the CBI was able to draw enough interest to create a new basketball community club based at the Manor Road Gym. The club became active in September 2018 with its own constitution, goals and and committee team. The club will be managed by one of the most qualified and experienced coaches in Sussex: Samuel Martinez.
