It is with devastating sadness and much disbelief that we are having to carry out the heart-breaking task of letting you all know that our much loved cornerstone of the London Thunder family Ann Pittman has passed away.

Ann worked tirelessly for the club since its inception and will be impossible to replace. She impacted positively on the lives of so many young people and brought her love of basketball, energy and passion with her to every task she undertook.

Our thoughts and support go out to her family at such a sad time. Its difficult to describe or convey how much she loved basketball and the basketball community. It now becomes our duty to continue to work at Thunder in her name and to never forget how much we all owe to Ann and her legacy. In the words of her son Josh, ‘Without her none of this would have been possible’.
