Wandsworth Half Term Basketball & 3v3 Tournament @ Caius House in SW London

Our Wandsworth Half Term basketball event, actually 2 events in 1, took place in the Caius House Youth Centre!
The house of LBA weekly scrimmages was prepared for daily balling sessions over the time off school! From Monday 26th to the Thursday 29th of October we had amazing scrimmages happening and to finish the week off well, we organised Wandsworth HT Tournament on Friday 30th!
All of the South West players who showed up, exactly 55 of them (!) showed off too! Amazing skills were really on the spotlight, the boys in all ages under 18 did not want to leave the court at the end of sessions.
Led by two coaches, Nouras Charabi and Andre Dias Reis, the scrimmages were too much fun!
All of the boys expressed genuine gratitude, they really missed the game and we really missed engaging with them!
The final of our Half Term ballout all over London was the Friday’s 3v3 Tournament! Crazy plays, last second game winners, great atmosphere, medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, trophies for the winning team & the MVP, as well as other awards for the individual achievements such as LBA Spirit Award and LBA Hard Worker Award!!!
We could not ask for a better showdown!
All of the teams played their hearts out and the players kept supporting each other through all of the ups and downs!
The respect was there, the competitive spirit was there, all of the boxes were ticked to the fullest!

We’d like to thank those who helped us make all of the planned half term events a reality!
Thanks to you we gave 150 young people an opportunity to play the game they love, gain the memories they’ll never forget, develop their skills, create new friendships and finally take a break from the sad reality of the pandemic!
We loved it, they loved it, we all loved it.
The basketball community will never forget!!!
