The club ran a successful, keenly fought, but enjoyable Wheelchair Basketball Tournament at Bourne End Junior Sports Club last Sunday, the 25th of November.

 

We would particularly like to thank Wendy, Pete and Liz from BEJSC for their continued support of the Aces allowing us the free use their facility.

 

The event raised in excess of £1300 towards club funds.

 

Our grateful thanks to the ten teams that entered the event with competitors being drawn from as far afield as Worthing, Felixstowe, Sandhurst, East and South London and those closer to home from Aylesbury, Oxford and lastly the local team entered by the Junior Committee of BEJSC themselves.

 

The format for the day was two pools of five teams playing each other followed by semi-finals, third place playoff and final. The final was a closely contested affair between a team from Gerald Simonds and Wells 1 with the latter winning 4 nil.

 

Thank you to everyone that helped organise, donations, support and run the event.

 

 

Jerry Strange

Chairman
