It’s official: players from our Oxfordshire Basketball
U11s team are some of the best players in southern England.
Following an intense final tournament last weekend, a panel - made up of all team coaches - decided upon the best players over the entire season, and invited them to try out for the England South U11s team.
We’re waiting to hear back about the two girls in our team, but the judges have already agreed that Ahmir (Oxford Hoops), LK, Lorenzo and Leo (all from Abingdon Eagles) are rising stars.
Around 20 players from across southern England will take part in the trials altogether, so it’s a fantastic pat on the back - for not only the players, but coaches and dedicated supporters - to know that at least 20% of the total (so far!) are ours.
So, as we cross our fingers for some good news about the girls, we also look forward to next month, when our young Oxfordshire sporting stars take to the court at Kings School Winchester for the trials.
As kit sponsor, we are so proud to be associated with the entire team so far, and want to give a big thank you to Shiv, Jo and Frankie; none of this would have been possible without all your hard work and support.
