About the Club

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 the club had 44 teams competing in the Junior Club Competition with 4 teams in the U8's and 9 teams in the U10's competition.

Training is held at the YWCA in Dawson Street Cooks Hill days and times to be confirmed as Newcastle Basketball now organise Club training venues.

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.
