The season 2015-2016 has come to an end on Saturday 23rd April. Gepeto Brothers are the new Men's Division One Champions after beating EY Beamers in the final (78-55). Gepeto Brothers started their world domination last season, their first as a club, by winning the play-off finals (Men's Division Two) and Cup final.
Congratulations to the new champions.
The Smurfs won the Men's Division Two final, after beating BC Zalia Balta (81-78). This was a very close final that kept all spectators at risk of hyper ventilating. Both teams presented a fair battle and the final could have gone either way. Congratulations to both teams and especially The Smurfs for their silverware in their first season with us.
Mudchute Moneyball is the recent winner of the Men's Cup Competition. This club competes in the Men's Division Two and has some Men's Division One scalps to its credit. They beat Soul in the final (52-48). Congratulations to this team for their success. Mudchute Moneyball marginally missed the play-offs. This has been a successful season for them.
