About the Plymouth Raiders
Plymouth Raiders is a professional basketball team based in Plymouth, England. The team compete in the British Basketball League (BBL), the country’s premier basketball competition – and play their home games at Plymouth Pavilions.

The club was founded in 1983 through a merger between two local basketball clubs and went on to be the longest serving and most successful team in Division 1 of the EBL National League.

Between 1996 and 2004, the Plymouth Raiders won six different competitions, including three National Basketball League Play-off titles and the National Cup in 2004. After years of dominating the lower leagues, in 2004 the Raiders moved to the British Basketball where they have established a great reputation for themselves.

Raiders also runs an elite Academy programme in the City, and works closely with the Plymouth Raiders Foundation to help develop the game of basketball across Devon and Cornwall. In August 2017 Plymouth Storm Wheelchair Basketball joined the Club and from 2017/18 season onwards will play as Plymouth Raiders Wheelchair Basketball.

In July 2017, the club was acquired by former players Richard Mollard and Ross Mackenzie, who are leading the club into an exciting new era both on and off the court.
