Fantastic day of basketball at the Essex U14 Girls 3x3 Festival!

On Saturday 19th May 2018, the East Region hosted a fantastic day of basketball at their recent FIBA U14 Girls Festival event held in Southend, Essex.

Thank you to the Mayor of Southend, Cllr Derek Jarvis who visited to support the girls playing and award the winners with their medals. Well done to all the players, and congratulations to Suffolk Sharks and Baddow Eagles who progress to the National 3x3 Finals in Manchester on 16th June! Taking third place was Fitz, but the real winner of the day was the game of basketball!

Massive thanks to everyone involved:

  • Physio - Holly Flint
  • DJ - Edward Warren
  • Officials - Sharley, Dominique, Moira, Morgan, Aaron and Will
  • Scorers - Molly, Niamh, Shannon and Poppy
  • Organisers - Angela, Carlos, Jazz, Claire and Dan
  • Plus a big thank you to all the players for their efforts!

We hope everyone had an enjoyable day, and good luck to both teams attending the national celebration event in Manchester in June, as they represent the East Region!
