BT London Live

Putney Basketball has been invited to attend the “BT London Live” event this Saturday the 11 August.

We will be helping the London Basketball Association at the Olympic Park (of Hyde Park). There will be some coaching of new players to do and some showcase games either against the public or amongst the teams.

What we need are:

  • 1/2 coaches, to help out on the day.
  • 2/3 players over 16 (not 100% necessary but opportunity for them). 
  • Times are-  18:00 start and finish at 21:00 

Once done we can chill out and enjoy the atmosphere.

We are looking for 3 people to join Jon at the event. Ideally anyone with coaching / umpiring experience but failing that just 3 keen players who want to enjoy this event.

Let Jon know via jon@londonbasketball.com if your keen to come along

Roehampton Sessions Closed

posted 21 Jun 2012, 05:01 by London Basketball

Sorry to have to say this but we closed the Roehampton sessions this month. We maintain the Wandle session on Tuesday but we just did not have the numbers for the Thursday. Maybe that will change and we can re-open what was a great run in its day.

See you all on the court Tuesdays.

Are you a stern Russian woman!
