The future of the Division One trophy rests in the hands of the top three sides – Trojans, Griffins and Hawks who play each other in the next few weeks.
Griffins had to overcome a bruising encounter with Tamworth Tigers as Trojans had it much easier against Warwick China Red as the games featuring Aylesford, Leamington Coventry College and Trojans 2 were all called off.
Battle-weary China Red (PICTURED) play their third game this week when they go to Stratford tonight as Ernesford Eagles entertain JM Grizzlies who won against China Red on Wednesday.
Tile Hill Trojans 3 made victory number four for their season with a win over Team Rebels who had defeated Nuneaton Predators earlier in the week. Westwood Rhinos found the going tough when they hosted Rugby Rage who kept their unbeaten record going in style.
YOUNG TIGERS GET READY TO ROAR…..
Back in the day, Tamworth Tigers were strongly featured in every competition run by Warwickshire Basketball. They then slipped off our radar but came back a few years ago under different management. Now, as part of the regeneration of basketball in the town Tamworth, Tigers are involved in the launch of THE GRASSROOTS BASKETBALL ACADEMY this Sunday. Tigers have really established themselves back in Division One this season and are clearly looking to the future by trying to attract youngsters to our great sport.
The Grassroots Academy launches at 12noon at Landau Forte Academy – see details in the picture opposite, but for further enquiries please contact 07985 737011 or 07825 082559.
On behalf of Warwickshire Basketball THE BEAR FACTS wish Tamworth and Tigers every success with their new venture.
