AYR Storm Basketball Club are grateful to local business who are supporting the growth of the club and helping them ensure it remains an affordable sport for all boys and girls in Ayrshire to come along and try and get involved in.

Recently some club players, coaches and fundraising committee members popped into K&M's Barbers to thank owners Mark and Karen for their support and present them with a framed warm up top for their wall. Ayr Storm have been growing rapidly and has players age six to adult and has girls, boys and adult teams. On behalf of Ayr Storm we would like to sincerely thank all our sponsors for their support this season.

A busy weekend saw the Ayr Storm U16men in both Scottish league SBC and local league SLBA action. The results did not go their way, however they have secured their place in the SLBA play-offs and have a tough semi-final to look forward to against Glasgow Rocks Youth.

SLBA U16m Div A FT: Ayrshire Tornadoes 77 Ayr Storm 73.

The men's side did not fare much better, looking to get themselves out the basement spot in SLBA SM Division 1, they opened strongly against Glasgow Fever with guard dan Bajwoluk assisted by forwards Sam Wallace and Achraf Lamiri getting in the early baskets. However a disastrous third period saw the Ayr offence shutdown and Fever finding too much space in the defense and they raced into a 20pt lead that coach Moug was unable to get his team to make inroads to.

The U18 men also faced Glasgow City - and not for the first time this season found themselves up against a taller stronger side. Ayr's pace and movement gave them an early lead but City came back into the game and their combination of midrange shots and inside play - along with strong three-point shooting meant they slowly stretched away.
