The Dallas Skyline Basketball Club moved its headquarters to 680 N. Glenville Drive in Richardson’s Arapaho Business Park in October. The professional basketball team is scheduled to begin its second season in April as a member of The Basketball League, a nationwide minor professional league.

Before the coronavirus pandemic ended TBL's season in March, the Skyline played its home games at the Alfred J. Loos Fieldhouse in Addison. For the upcoming season, Skyline owner Prescott Mack said he would like the team to be able to play its games in Richardson.

“We're really hoping that The University of Texas at Dallas will welcome us or Richland College or any of the Richardson ISD schools,” he said. “We want to not only have our headquarters here, but we want to play here as well.”

The Skyline’s preseason training camp is slated to start March 26. Mack said he expects the team to include an even mix of players from the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the nation and the world.

“We made a lot of changes during the pandemic and hired a female head coach,” Mack said of head coach and general manager Angela Davidson. “She's working really, really hard putting together a really good roster.” 469-904-2030. www.dallasskylinebc.com
