Staff Information
Name: John Rubery

Biography: I was introduced to basketball 50 years ago when I went to university. Somebody in the next room had played at school and took me along to the university club. At first I was totally useless and have never been much better but I enjoyed the game and have stayed with it ever since. When I started teaching in Essex, I began to coach school teams and qualified as a coach and as a referee. I joined with a teacher at another school and we formed a club we called TQ Havering. In the mid sixties, I took our juniors to the Under 18 national Cup Final at Crystal Palace, losing both times to another Essex club, Avenue - the Essex schools teams were very strong then. Soon after I moved to Weston in 1969, I started the game at Worle School and from that the Worle club followed in 1973. Since that time I have been on and off the WEBBA Committee in various roles including Chairman and most recently as Men's League Secretary, now Men's Competitions Secretary, since the 1996-97 season. I did some National League refereeing in the 1980s and continue to referee local games, but I expect a number of people would agree that it is time I retired.
