The year 7 Basketball side were in action tonight in a superbly attended town basketball tournament at Dorothy Stringer. Hove Park played in a group with Paca, Baca, Dorothy Stringer A team and Blatchington Mill school. The standard was high and only the top two teams could go through. Hove Park won all of their games in superb fashion to make the semi finals and Tom was given HPS player of the tournament for his superb contribution in the pool stages. On to the knock out stage!
In the semi finals Hove park swept aside a strong Longhill team with comparative ease to make the finals where they beat Dorothy Stringer B team 16-2 with an exceptional defencive performance to win the tournament. A superb example on what commitment to training and hard work can do. Leon was awarded Most Valuable Player in the tournament and every player can be exceptionally proud of their efforts on and off the court this year!
Huge thanks to Tom Dunston from South Coast Elite Basketball for organising the tournament and the South Coast Elite programme which is taking Brighton Basketball to the next level!
