Homecoming for Hildreth & Marsh as Wake Forest to play in Surrey

Cameron Hildreth Wake Forest

Cameron Hildreth and Matt Marsh will return to the UK next week as Wake Forest embark on a European tour that will see them visit four different countries across 10 days.

The team are set to face off against Barking Abbey in an exhibition on August 4th at 7:30pm at Surrey Sports Park – the venue that Hildreth played in while representing Surrey Scorchers in the BBL.

“Basketball in England has been my whole life and been around my family for their whole lives,” said former Sussex Storm guard Hildreth.

“I’m really looking forward to going back home and playing in front of more of a home crowd. I came here last year to chase my dreams of playing basketball in America, so going back to where it all started to play for a short time is really exciting.”

Surrey Sports Park Managing Director Gavin Baker added: “What better way to promote basketball in Surrey than the opportunity to showcase some of British Basketball’s top young talent. We are really looking forward to welcoming Cam back and seeing his growth over the last year. I’m sure the Scorchers fans as well as British basketball fans will be happy to see him.”

The team, coaches and support staff will explore London, Paris, have a day trip to Normandy and finish their trip in Amsterdam. While in London, Wake Forest will also do cultural experiences off the floor, including a walking tour of London and a tour of the Churchill War Rooms. The group will also visit the Imperial War Museum and the London Olympic facilities.

“I’m really excited to go back to Europe, this is a real opportunity for me and Cam especially,” said Wake Forest big man Matthew Marsh. “I’m from Cornwall and lived in Reading for a year so being able to play in London in front of fans, friends and family is a really great opportunity, I can’t wait. The last time I was able to play in England was maybe four years ago so it’s really exciting.”

Tickets for the Surrey game cost £5.98 and are available to buy here.
