Taunton Tigers Basketball Club Home Venues — Where we play our home games


Because the club has a number of teams, coupled with not posessing a venue of their own, home games are played at a variety of courts in Taunton. From the Mens team playing at Wellsprings, to the junior teams use of Richard Huish Dome the club trys to use the venues that are most suitable for games and training sessions whilst still being economical — an important factor, with court hire being the single biggest cost to the club.

Wellsprings Leisure Centre

Over the years the Tigers have played the majority of their home games at the Wellsprings Leisure Centre in Taunton which has a seating capacity of 350 and a balcony stretching the entire width of the hall, at one end, overlooking the court. The most suitable court in Taunton to host National League games, the club trys to use Wellsprings as often as it can but at times it may be unavailable due to cost or because of other bookings. It has been the home of the Mens team since it opened and has seen many exciting games of Basketball in partnership with the Tigers. Construction of the Centre was finished just in time for the beginning of the 2004/05 season and as well as having fantastic basketball facilities it also has a restaurant/cafe, function/meeting rooms, fitness suite and studio and bar.
