A group of innovative youths loved a series of Babergh-led pilot sessions in basketball so much - they decided to form their own club!

Youngsters from Great Cornard, near Sudbury, were thrilled with taster sessions organised by the Be Active pro-ject as part of Babergh's summer activities last year - and decided to take their interest to next level.

After hours of hard work - and some recruiting of interested parents and volunteers - the Cornard Kings Basket-ball Club is ready to play and start in the Ipswich National League from this October.

Babergh District Council offered to sponsor the club through its development programme in partnership with Lorna Radford, Senior Development Officer, at Great Cornard Sports Centre.

As a result, the council funded four volunteers to attend sessions that would see them achieve their Level 1 Bas-ketball Award, which includes coaching and umpiring games.
