About the Chargers
It all started when...
Hobart has been competing in the SEABL competition since 1981 with the exception of a 5 year period in the 80’s when the team progressed to the NBL a SEABL team was re-entered in 1990. The Chargers were “born” in 1997 after the demise of the NBL Devils.
We are an elite basketball team that provides an opportunity for participation in competitive basketball at a National level. We provide pathways for junior development within basketball and give local talent the opportunity to develop further and reach their full potential. Our development squad competes in the local STBL roster.
Off the court we pride ourselves in promoting healthy, active lifestyles in communities through our involvement with the Basketball Tasmania in Schools Basketball program and Active after Schools Communities Program.
The club is run by a board of highly skilled volunteers who all share a passion for basketball and a vision for whole community involvement and enrichment. Their dedication has seen our club thrive in recent years. Our 2017 season is shaping to be our biggest yet with our games being brought back to a brand new court at the Derwent Entertainment Centre.
