MELODY x INTRODUCTION
MELODY Shanghai Women’s Basketball Club was established on May 22nd 2004. She is a community sports club focusing on basketball for women at the grassroots level. MELODY’s founder came to Shanghai for the first time in the winter of 1997. Influenced by her brothers, she started to get involved with the sport of basketball at the age of eight. However, due to the limited resources and opportunities for girls’ basketball, it was only until her junior year in high school that she first had the experience of proper basketball training.
After graduating high school in Xiamen in 2002, MELODY’s founder returned to Shanghai for further education. Having left her high school basketball team, she was eager to continue playing basketball. However, she did not find what she was looking for. Two years later, realizing how much she missed playing basketball, she thought of the idea of setting up her own basketball team in Shanghai. And she did just that.
MELODY is one of the oldest, well established, and structured amateur women’s basketball clubs in the nation. She is also a key player in amateur women’s basketball development in the world. With support from the club’s team members and management team, MELODY has been spreading our passion for this game to encourage participation of female ballers around the globe. We aim to provide more opportunities for women to play basketball at the grassroots level. Although we are not a group of professional players, we have a very strong passion for this team sport. Operating as a non-for-profit sports club, MELODY is managed by a group of committed team members who volunteer their time for the club. MELODY strives to take women’s basketball development at the grassroots level in Shanghai (and eventually other cities, countries) to another level.
Years have passed. Through thick and thin, MELODY now has a group of committed team members playing together every week. With the support of its members and media attention throughout the years, MELODY Shanghai Women’s Basketball Club has gained recognition by the local women’s basketball community. MELODY members are basketball enthusiasts from different basketball backgrounds from all around the world. Even so MELODY believes that there are still many more ladies out there looking for us, looking to play this team sport.
