Meet the Board - Part 3 


Haydn Jones (Director)

Involved in basketball for over 30 years. Played club basketball in Swansea and represented Wales at U19 youth level. (Long before the Promotions Cup and Division C!)
I qualified as a floor official at the age of 16 and after many years in Local Leagues took the decision to officiate in England from 2000. 
I qualified as an International Referee in 2005 and have officiated at 2 women's Eurobasket Championships in 2011 & 2013, including the semi-final in 2011. I also officiated at the first Euroleague Women Final 8 in Istanbul in 2012.
I have officiated 10 major cup and play-off finals in the BBL.
Hope and ambitions 
To see basketball played in schools as a first choice indoor sport, and to see BW be commercially strong on its own merits. 
Favourite player 
 There is only one... Michael Jordan. He transformed the game and the dynamic of the whole sport. 
Interesting fact 
I was fortunate enough to officiate a pre-Olympic friendly between GB and the USA. My first foul call was on Kobe Bryant!
