We are proud to be the main sponsor of the Jersey women's basketball league which starts on Tuesday 19 April. Running every Tuesday from 19:00-21:00 for 10 weeks, the league is suitable for any females aged 13+ who would like to play basketball in a fun and inclusive environment. No experience is necessary and the sessions take place at Oakfield Sports Centre.
As a firm we have a particular affinity with this community initiative as it is organised by one of our own, Heather Watters, an Associate in our Jersey litigation team. Heather is a keen basketball player and decided to set-up the league to attract some fresh talent to the sport.
Heather said, "I'm delighted that Bedell Cristin agreed to sponsor the women's basketball league in Jersey. The funds will enable us to introduce basketball to a new audience, and who knows, maybe we will find some new talent for the next Island Games!"
If you'd like to join the league please email Heather at email@example.com. All she needs to know is your name and that you'd like to play, and then she'll assign you to a team.
In addition to the league, Heather has organised a Dribbleathon on Monday 18 April, starting from the freedom tree beside the Radisson Hotel, going to First Tower and back again. It starts at 12:00 and is open to all abilities. Those new to the sport can try dribbling with one ball, and the more advanced can dribble with both hands. There's no need to book for this, simply turn up at 12:00 by the freedom tree. This event is open to all, not just women. Just bring a ball and have some fun!
