What to expect?
The team, Vytės, is open to all women who are passionate about basketball! All ages and abilities are welcome. Ideally you will have at least some basic experience dribbling and shooting basketballs, but as long as you are keen and willing to learn, the team and coaches can guide you.
The goal is to compete in local women’s basketball leagues, while having fun!
Practice sessions take place on Fridays from 5:30 – 7pm. Sometimes there are off-court meet-ups for socialising over drinks/food as well.
Wear comfortable sport clothes, preferably shorts and t-shirts as it gets warm with all the physical activity. It’s recommended to wear basketball shoes for more ankle support, but you can wear anything comfortable.
There is free parking at the school. There are toilets, where you can change if needed.
There are also men’s and children’s basketball teams!
For questions ring Asta on 07851 299 204 or Reda on 07821 979 868.
The first session is free, so you can see if you like it without any pressure. They also provide professional women’s basketball balls, so you do not have bring your own ball.
After your first session, sessions are £3 each to cover the court hire costs.
