The Arrows were first formed in the January of 1991 following a meeting of parents and supporters in Chippinghouse Road, Sheffield to offset the great pressure being brought to fold the team of some 10 players under the then Sheffield Basketball Club.
The team, many of which were from the successful Abbeydale Grange National Championship winning team plus Richard Windle from King Edward VII School and Bevan Mottram from Hinde House, decided to go it alone.
There were obstacles everywhere but the club was determined. Playing out of Hillsborough Sports Centre, the group continued to compete at the highest level available with great success regularly reaching finals.
Times were very tough for the Arrows. Training out of Abbeydale Grange School gym, the group and club was to become an amazing story of perseverance against the odds. Short of funding, but still a home for those who had little money but a determination to succeed, the club would continue to add teams at all age groups.
The Club moved finally to Dronfield Sports Centre at around 1993 when it found support from a Sports Development leader called Barrie Murfin and a parent Shaun Meakin who is now a long term director of the club.
