We entered two teams into separate leagues for this enjoyable festival. It was held at George Salter Secondary and run by Liam and his team of volunteers at West Bromwich Basketball Club. We were also lucky to be joined by one of our families who helped with transport and took the photographer role for us on the evening too! A big thank you for this.
Our more experienced side proved to be by far the strongest team there on the evening, scoring plenty of baskets throughout and not conceding any at all! Therefore, they won the main trophy and gold medals. Meanwhile, our second team got better and better as the evening went on. They lost narrowly in their first game but went on to gain confidence and win their remaining fixtures to finish second in their league and take the silver medals.
Everyone played well and it is pleasing to see more and more children develop their skills and confidence. Well done everyone. Laces this week go to Simon and Olivier for their effort and determination. Congratulations to Victor as well, who was presented with a West Brom basketball vest for being a good team player and encouraging others.
