The club also introduced their new U20 squad that will compete as the Warriors in a new Basketball Ireland Mens National competition for that level.

In his address to the assembled players, coaching staff, committee members, press, sponsors and friends of the club, Chairman Terry O’Brien announced that the club had reached a three year sponsorship agreement with main sponsors the Garvey Group for this season and the following two seasons.

Garvey’s Tralee Warriors take on archrivals UCD Marian in the opening game of the season on Saturday night next in the Tralee Sports Complex. Tip off is at 7.30pm.
