Coach Arbham Giga said ‘This was great experience for our young ballers and they all had fun. We had worked very hard off season at Evington Leisure Centre so when the season started we thought we would be competitive. ‘

Parent Malik said ‘My son just started 6 months ago and he is having so much fun, and to be picked for the team he was over the moon. I just want to thank the Leicester Warriors organisation as their training sessions are fun and you can tell the coaches are very experienced in what they do’.

Parent Joseph D said ‘Although my son only played a few games he enjoyed the camaraderie of the club, he is really enjoying himself’.

We are always looking for new players, so if you want to play basketball in Leicester come and join us now!
