Players were selected to play for England after attending a three-day selection camp at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester.

Run as part of the England Talent Programme, the camp put the next generation of English talent through a series of assessments, skills and drills stations, offensive and defensive set-ups, and games.

BE's Talent Pathway and Programme Manager Sam Messam, said:

"Having had a very successful camp last week it is great to be travelling to the Torneig Ciutat D'Alaior De Baskequet Base (Alaior City Tournament) in Menorca with four England teams.

"The level of competition will be a real test of our preparation and performance, and will afford our coaches and players the opportunity to compete against high-level opposition. The England Talent Programme is very much about preparation and performance testing towards our GB Youth Teams participation in the European Championships. Being invited to this level of competition is a real step forward in our U14 and U15 development programmes."
