Fastbreak Club

Who We Are
Fastbreak Club is an organization made up of alumni, family, friends and members of the community who support the Women’s Basketball Program by ensuring our student-athletes have the best academic and athletic experience possible while at the University of Memphis.

Annually the Fastbreak Club hosts various events. These events are designed to bring increased exposure to the Women’s Basketball team in the Memphis community, increase attendance at home games, and raise money to help support the program.
The success of the FBC in the past has been able to aid our Memphis Tigers by funding International Travel and a two phase remodeling of the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
In 2014 Memphis Tiger Basketball officially entered into a new era by becoming a member of the American Athletic Conference and we need you to invest in the future of the Women’s Basketball program by joining the Fastbreak Club. Only through these additional resources can our coaches continue to recruit top student-athletes and continue a tradition of excellence on and off the court!
