Ares Basketball name origination
When thinking about what to name our club, we were having a hard time coming up with something unique. Since our director grew up in Greece, he thought we could try and come up with something unique using Greek basketball club names. While brainstorming, we noticed most of the names that already existed were hard to remember or pronounce. Our director then shared a story of how he was a P.A.O.K fan and most of his close family members were fans of Aris BC and game days were always filled of competitive spirits. We all agreed that Ares Basketball would be a perfect name for our club!
What does Ares mean?
Ares is the Greek God of War. If you ever got into Greek mythology, you would know he is the son of Zeus and Hera. Greeks believed he embodies the physical valor necessary to win in war which could come in handy during tournaments! Of course, it is a myth.
There is an Aris Basketball Club in Greece?
Yes, the pro league in Greece has an organization called Aris. Aris includes other sports such as pro soccer. They are based out of norther Greece and we don’t have any direct association with them. There have been some great basketball players come out of Greece over the years and they have some exciting basketball games.
Why Ares Basketball?
We love what we do.
