Discussing the future of the club, Walsh said, “While the club has ceased playing this season, our college team are still going strong and are on course to reach the league semi-final and we will be hosting the Intervarsity’s in April so we still have lots of basketball to be played this season.  As for future and club basketball we hope to announce exciting plans in the coming weeks so watch this space.”
