Although the girls didnt get any wins Leicester Warriors Girls Coach Reuben J Walker was very pleased with the progress shown:

“The girls have been working hard all off-season and I was amazed how well they gelled and passed the ball around. They have only been playing together for a few months but all of them have worked very hard.

We played against one of the best girls programmes in the country and we showed we can compete at a high national league level.

We only lost to Sheffield Hatters by 8 who were formed in the early 1960’s and are the first women’s basketball team in England and also one of the most successful women’s sports club in the country. And against the professional BBL team Leeds Force team we lost by 5.

The team are looking forward to the season starting in October where we will be competing in the Basketball England U14s North League against teams like Derby Trailblazers, Manchester Mystics, Nottingham Wildcats and Lancashire Spinners. It will be an exciting season. ”

Parent Chloe who made the trip said “I just want to thank Reuben for taking time out to help the girls. I know he is a volunteer but he is always smiling and a great coach. He has great setup here at the Leicester Warriors and I am very happy I brought my daughter here for girls basketball!”

Remember you can still join the Leicester Warriors throughout the season.

We are the Number 1 Community Club in Leicester and Leicestershire. Everyone is welcome.
