The Depiro Basketball Nursery is at the heart of the Depiro Sports Club. The basketball section has been taking part in national compeitions since 1972. The club roots were formed through this beautiful game of basketball. In fact the club was known as Depiro Basketball Club before changing its name to Depiro Sports Club (2022) which reflects the growth of this club within the community through the different services offered. Thus the basketball section is a very important sector for us that we take pride of.

The club employs only professional qualified coaches and invests in the ongoing training of coaches where it gives them the opportunity to keep developing their coaching pedagogy and knowledge of the game.
Competitions and International Camps
Our club gives the athletes the chance to form part of their age group category team and participate in the national leagues organised by the Malta Basketball Association. Besides that, athletes can also participate in training camps on the Island and abroad as well as part-take in training offered by host foreign coaches.
The club boasts achievements on multiple levels with various honours won locally and internationally, together with a large representation in national teams in all sectors. We believe that success is reached in different ways such as teamwork, resilience, time management, handling pressure, sportsmanship, leadership, commitment and working hard to win. These are all skills learned together with the technical and tactical abilities of basketball which will help them to achieve their full potential thanks to our professional team of coaches.
