Boarding: Basketball League Cup Final

Comments are closed.

Within the boarding community, students have the opportunity every Sunday to experience a variety of trips which include; Alton Towers, Indoor Skiing, as well as shopping trips to Oxford, Birmingham and Leicester.

On Sunday 8th January, the boarders enjoyed a fantastic opportunity and went to support local basketball team, the Leicester Riders. It was a thrilling League Final against tough opposition in the Newcastle Eagles. It was a very enjoyable trip, which also included a slam dunk competition and an amazing gymnastic display.   The game couldn’t have finished better; Leicester came back from 11 points down with 4 minutes remaining to steal the game from Newcastle, much to the delight of the students, who cheered Leicester on in an extremely tense game. All students behaved superbly, with many already planning on attending next year!
