The Port Hunter Basketball Club was founded in the early 1960's and is the oldest Basketball Club in Newcastle. We celebrated our 50yr anniversary in 2014. It had its beginnings as the Stockton National Fitness Basketball Club. With the success of the Club and the expansion of the member base through the 1970's the Club was renamed in 1980 to the Port Hunter Basketball Club.
Last year he Club had 31 teams competing in the Junior Club Competition and 9 teams in the Super 10's competition.
Training is held at the YWCA in Dawson Street Cooks Hill usually on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays to suit the players & Coaches. We also have training at the Waratah High Callagan Campus.
Our most successful player is Suzy Batkovic who played her junior club basketball with the Port Hunter Club. Suzy was in the Opal team which attend the London Olympics and played in the Townsville Fire team in the WNBL.
