Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club News story

Did somebody say "New Hoops"

07 Jul 2020

In 4 weeks Yateley Silverbacks basketball club has fundraised enough money to purchase two new outdoor hoops to live on the courts with two other old ones at Yateley Manor School so we have 2 outdoor courts and 4 baskets.

Congratulations and thanks to all who raised money by doing amongst other things: sponsored shooting, cricket bowlathons, car washing, housework, bike rides, donating pocket money and many more. Most of the fundraising was done by our junior players aged 7-16 but some of the adults chipped in too. Thank you.

Now let’s hope the rain disappears and we can have even better outdoor training sessions! And fingers crossed the virus is curtailed and the government and governing body allow us to scrimmage and go indoors too soon!

Finally, thank you too to the YM maintenance staff for building and putting the hoops up so quickly for us
