JMA Basketball trip to the O2

What an experience we had on Sunday the 14th May at the British Basketball League Men and Womens Finals 2017.

After our own season has held such great adventures and opportunities, to earn a trip to see the top level in GB was just the ticket!

We set off from JMA at 11am and arrived at the always breath-taking O2 arena at 1pm.

After the photos and general excitement we sat down to watch the Womens Final between Sevenoaks Suns and Nottingham Wildcats! After being down 11 points in the second quarter it was the Suns that rose to a stunning win to claim their second piece of silverware in the season!

A great opportunity for our Year 8 girls team to be up close to some of the best in the game and see first-hand how hard the players were competing to be at the top of the game.

We would like to thanks JMA and all the staff for making it possible for us to have such a positive day! Thanks to the Rockets for providing the social media pictures too!

Now we are back at school and straight into training…… Maybe one day one of us will play at the O2 too!
