Meet The Coaches

Mark Hinton – Coach of Folkestone Basketball Academy

I started in 1987 with BBL club BCP London (Brunel and Crystal Palace) where I spent several years coaching at county level. I have also coached successful team’s at all junior National League levels.

I joined Folkestone Basketball Club in 2001, and over the past 15 years have gained league trophies and cup awards at all levels within the East Kent and Medway Leagues. Folkestone Basketball Club now boasts over 120 members and 11 teams including 3 junior National League and 1 National League men’s team.

Through my work with Folkestone Basketball Club I was awarded ‘England Basketball Volunteer Coach of the Year 2013’.

Folkestone Basketball Club and I are very proud to have produced players such as:

James Lloyd: England Junior and FC Porto

Tyler Russell: England Junior

David Coachman: England Junior
