Our sessions take place in your school hall, or school gymnasium.
What if my child was a member before?
If your child was a member of the club before they will retain their place, if they choose to return. We are proud of our ethos which encourages commitment and we are always here to develop your child’s basketball skills. We therefore give priority places to our returning players.
If your child was a previous member and left the club before the end of the school year, they will not be eligible for a priority place. Please contact us if you have any questions.
How long does the club run through the school year?
ALL YEAR LONG! YAY!!
What happens if I don’t get in?
If your application is unsuccessful your child will be placed on a waiting list. If and when a place becomes available in the club, we will be in contact as soon as we can. We do try to accommodate as many children as we can, and we do value all the children waiting to join the club.
My child came home with some information about your club and won’t leave me alone until I sign them up!! What did you say to them!!?? LOL! ☺

Will I be entitled to a refund if my child does not wish to continue?
You can cancel your membership at any time.
My session is in the morning, should my child arrive in school uniform or in their PE Kit?
We would recommend they arrive ‘ready to go!’ but some schools do prefer children to arrive in school uniform. We don’t mind! But please check with your school if you are unsure.
– SIBLING QUERIES –
If I have a child in year 3 and a child in year 6, can they attend the same session?
If your school has two Ball Up Clubs (year 3&4 and 5&6) then children are encouraged to play in their respective age groups. We do understand that in some cases, logistics may not make this possible. In the event of this happening for you please Contact us, we do try to accommodate sibling players as best we can.
My child is a previous member, and now has a younger sibling who wants to join. Does my younger child get priority?
No, you’re younger child will have to go through the application process as a new member.
