Lisa Wainwright has left her role as CEO of GB Basketball following two years of leading the sport through significant political change and financial challenges. After successfully securing funds over the two years, the sport has seen 8 GB Basketball Teams take to the court with some memorable successes, in particular for the Under 18 and 20 Men, maintaining their position in FIBA Division A and the Senior Women leading the way in the qualification group in Europe.
Lisa led the work with the Government to ensure elite basketball had funding to continue bringing stability most importantly for GB athletes. We wish Lisa well with her future career and know she will not be far away from the sport as she will continue to support her three local basketball schemes in Leicestershire. For her part Lisa wishes the GB Senior Teams well for the forthcoming international matches.
