Depiro Basketball Club is one of the leading basketball clubs in Malta, participating in all local competitions throughout the season since 1973.
Depiro BC has its private premises in Imtarfa namely the well-equipped indoor parquet Gym which include a weight room, another multi-purpose area and a turfed five-a-side football pitch, hosting various sports and related activities throughout the year.
Activities at Depiro BC include SibtSports, a weekly programme of 3 hours during the scholastic year mainly Saturdays, where children practice all sort of indoor sports especially basketball. During summer, Depiro offers a Summer School for children up to 13 years during week days where various sports and other activities, such as drama, art & craft, cooking and science are practised. Children are also taken to excursions and other activities outside Depiro premises during the Summer School.
The basketball nursery runs all year round, from ages as low as 5 years up, offering coaching for all categories, from mini-basket to under 19. Depiro BC is proud that most of the talented players, many of which have represented Malta internationally were a product of Depiro BC. Apart from being used in the programmes mentioned above, Depiro BC owns a multi-purpose area that is also used for gymnastics, hired out for Tang Soo Do classes and other sports activities.
The main gym (where basketball sessions takes place) is also privately hired by third parties for basketball, volleyball, fencing and other sports all year round. As is evident, the gym is populated by children, youths, senior players and parents all year round and it is our goal that the best training and education is given within a friendly, happy and safe environment.
The committee, together with the Events Committee work endlessly to organise activities with the primary objective of team building, fund raising activities, and bonding between club members. Last year different activities have been organised, such as bowling events, a two-night Bootcamp at the premises, a Fun Day, a presentation night BBQ and a Christmas party.
A Depiro membership card was also introduced offering various discounts at different famous businesses on the island. This enabled the Club to buy new equipment which is now being used by coaches to the benefit of all athletes.
