The Ivanhoe Knights Basketball Club is based in Melbourne’s north-east. Our players come from the suburbs of Clifton Hill, Fairfield, Thornbury, Northcote, Preston, Alphington, Eaglemont, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Viewbank, Kew East, Balwyn North and further afield.
Knights players range in age from 7 to 19 and play in the Eastern Districts Junior Basketball Association (EDJBA). The club fields about 70 teams per season and is run by a committee of volunteers.
Games are played at various times and locations on Saturdays and each team has a one-hour mid-week training session. We also run introductory and skills clinics and have an outreach program into local primary schools.
The club’s philosophy is based on pleasure and participation, not ‘win at all costs’. Our major sponsor is the Bendigo Bank.
