Basketball has led to many amazing experiences and taught me a lot. People are never surprised when I tell them I play basketball, as it has very much become part of what who I am. Whilst basketball has high levels of participation, in the UK funding has never been a priority.
Five Wealth’s sponsorship will allow me to continue to compete at the highest level and represent a club with a vast history of success and more importantly supporting their surrounding community.
Whilst Division One is a semi-professional league, the league would not be possible without the support of its many volunteers, fans, and sponsors. Like Five Wealth, Bradford Dragon’s pride themselves on empowering individuals and understand the importance of each member of the club/team, to ensure the best outcomes for the company/club.’
Bradford tipped off the Lynch Trophy on Saturday 9th October 2020, with a win against Team Newcastle. Game recaps, along with a recording of all the games from the weekend can be found on the England Basketball website linked below:
Bradford have since won their second game of the trophy against Myerscough, securing themselves a place in the quarter finals, with their final game of the group stages scheduled for Saturday 14th November against Derby Trailblazers. The winner will finish top of the table and secure home court advantage for the quarter finals.
‘For anyone who has not watched a basketball game, I strongly recommend going to one if you get the chance. Sporting fan or not, I am yet to meet someone who has been disappointed for doing so.
I cannot thank everyone at Five Wealth enough for the positive, supportive environment they have created within the firm and for truly taking an interest in me as an individual.
The league is due to start at the beginning of November. Further details can be found on the England Basketball and/or Bradford Dragons websites.
