Wales basketball team nets sponsorship
Nov 26, 2019, 9:13 pm

 

Welsh junior team agrees a new partnership with a regional housebuilder to help them get to a tournament in Paris.

 

The Wales Under 15s boys’ team which trains at Cynffig Comprehensive School in Bridgend, has been handed £1,000 by Persimmon Homes West Wales through its Community Champions Scheme.

 

Each month the housebuilder donates up to £1,000 each to two groups or individuals in the area.

 

The sponsorship will help fund a summer tournament in Paris for the talented group of youngsters. The tour comes with many expenses, which the sponsorship will help cover. Basketball Wales doesn’t receive any funding and the players selected to play for their country have to fundraise to pay for everything from playing kit to court hire and tours.

 

Emma Whitney-Embleton, team manager, said: “We are delighted to agree sponsorship with Persimmon Homes West Wales.

 

“The players selected have had to go through rigorous trials to make the team and now have the opportunity to compete in a European tournament.

 

“The basketball tour will not only benefit the players sporting skills but also their personal attributes.

 

“We are very thankful to Persimmon Homes West Wales.”

 

Sharon Bouhali, Sales Director for Persimmon Homes West Wales, said: “We are thrilled to agree sponsorship with the team, and provide financial support.

 

“The European tour promises to be a fantastic experience for the gifted youngsters, we wish them the best of luck in the summer tournaments.”

 

 

 

There is still a range of stunning two, three and four bedroom homes available at Persimmon Homes’ West Wales development, Glas Y Felin in Bridged. For more information, please visit https://www.persimmonhomes.com/glas-y-felin-10876.

The Urdd 3x3 basketball tournament is back for the 2019/20 season, bigger and better with a tournament in North and South Wales.

The South Wales tournament will be held in Cardiff at the National Wales Sports Centre on Wednesday 4 December 2019 and the North Wales Tournament will be held on 6 February 2020 at the Plas Coch Sport Centre, Wrexham.

 

Keith Mair, Basketball Wales Chairman said:

 

“We were delighted when the Urdd asked us to work with them on a new basketball competition for schools. The are a well respected and inspirational organisation working across Wales.

 

I am hoping that more schools get involved this year, especially given the rise in popularity of this version of the game.

 

I look forward to going along to see the children compete when the tournament in in my hometown of Wrexham”.
