Phew! What a three days that was…
I was recently at the National Basketball Performance Centre AGAIN, (It’s becoming a second home). This time to host the first ever National Schools Championships & U14/U16’s Final Fours.
What a fantastic initiative and mini competition the National Schools Championships were! A tournament that held host to various school basketball teams from throughout the UK, as part of the international FIBA Celebration Day.
The tournament gave these young people a chance to play in a prestigious venue and develop their skills in a friendly, competitive environment. It was a pleasure to host, interact & get them fully engaged with the competition, basketball & sport in general.
I then spent the weekend hosting, announcing & arena commentating the U14s & U16s National Schools Championships Final Four, once again across two courts!
It never ceases to amaze me the competitive spirit and attitude of young sporting athletes. I wish them all the best going forward, hopefully reaching their full potential.
Now to finally go and rest my voice…
