The England’s U16 Boys and Girls and U18 Men and Women will take on Scotland, Wales and Ireland in Dublin and Cardiff respectively ahead of Great Britain U16, 18 and 20 teams’ participation in the FIBA European Youth Championships in the summer.

“This is a great opportunity for England’s U16 and U18 players and those of the other nations to stake their claims for inclusion in the Great Britain squads for the summer and to enjoy going up against each other in a competitive environment.
