Thunder head to Shoreham for cup tie

Worthing Thunder Basketball Club will play Sunday’s National Cup quarter-final home tie with Derby Trailblazers at Shoreham Academy.

Thunder had hoped to move Saturday’s league fixture at Leicester to another date and host the cup match at Worthing Leisure Centre on Saturday evening.

However, England Basketball refused their request and, with Worthing Leisure Centre unavailable on Sunday, the game has been moved to Shoreham and will tip-off at 2.30pm.

Ticket prices have been reduced to £5 for adults and £2 for children for the game and Thunder hope to fill the 400-seat venue for the match.
