Over the weekend we had our showpiece event of the season with our National Learning Disability Basketball Development Event 2018. Over 70 basketball players with a learning disability made their way up to the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester for an action packed day of basketball fun!
The aim of these development events are not to get teams in to compete and chase wins, but to act as a stepping stone into future events competition for our players with a learning disability. For many of these players coming to such a big venue surrounding by so many people is often a lot to ask, so we want these players to come in and enjoy themselves.
The event itself would not have been as much of a success without some key organisations of which we need to give a huge shout out to. Firstly Basketball England who were so accommodating with us for this event and to allow us to host the event in the National Basketball Performance Centre makes this such an experience for our players. Secondly and certainly by no means least, Dynamik Sports Flooring who for the second year running have continued to support this event and our development of Learning Disability Basketball in the UK. We look forward to more collaborative work future seasons!
