Our history with basketball began in the late 80’s, were the beginnings of Juver Murcia and the years of Randy Owens, an American who revolutionized this sport in Murcia, in the 89/90 season achieves a memorable ascent with Esteban Perez, Player who left us really marked by their way of playing, the seed of basketball was set.
The origins of the Triple Double team emerged more than 20 years ago, in the lower categories of Club Baloncesto Murcia with Esteban Montesinos, in that Cadet B with almost all first year boys, but with a lot of quality, some children who had started to play basketball In the Club with just 8 or 9 years of age.
Best of all, the friendship offered by basketball and sport in general, that friendship with these guys arises 20 years later a team, now veterans, in the league of the Federation of Basketball of the Region of Murcia and participation In a new tournament of over 40 in Santander that showed us a new world of basketball beyond the age in which is usually played, but this time at the international level.
Later a trip to Ireland to play in Galway has convinced us that Murcia has to host an international tournament of maxibasket, because there are many players at this age and because Murcia loves basketball without age limit.
And Veteranas San Jueves is a great team of basket player friends. We begun to play basket when we were children in some of the most important teams in Murcia. But it was just ten years ago, when we met by chance and decided to play again all together.
This time, Thursday seemed to be the best day to play basket, and that´s the way we became San Jueves Team.
Since then, we enjoy every week playing basket and having fun. Last year, we first played in Santander Master Basketball and it was an incredible experience, where we met a lot of great people and discovered a new way to enjoy this game.
