- National Teams
The Hoopsfix Foundation will bring back the Hoopsfix Pro-Am Summer League for the second consecutive year, taking place from June 18th until July 16th at Brixton Recreation Centre, South London (TBC).
The five week summer league will bring together the best of British basketball, targeted at elite level players, some of whom are rarely seen in organised competition in the UK.
In its debut year, headlining names include Great Britain Senior internationals such as captain Carl Wheatle, Amin Adamu, Jordan Williams, Akwasi Yeboah, Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye, Rob Gilchrist, Matthew Bryan-Amaning, and Orlan Jackman – fresh off winning a Commonwealth Games gold medal with England that summer, while on the female side, GB capped players included London Lions’ Holly Winterburn, Shanice Beckford-Norton, Shequila Joseph and Sevenoaks Suns’ Renee Busch, amongst others.
It was two college prospects who picked up MVP honours, with Isi Ozzy-Momodu being recognised before heading to JUCO in Florida this season, while Peter Turay, currently at NCAA Division II school University of West Alabama, claimed men’s tournament MVP honours.
The event, which is free for spectators, will be NCAA certified to allow Division 1 student-athletes to play and will feature 8 men’s teams, and 4 women’s teams, taking place from 12pm until 8pm on Sundays; 18th June, 25th June, 2nd July, 9th July & 16th July.
GMs will be responsible for managing their team, co-ordinating their players, organising a coach and being the point of contact for the league.
Sponsors will be announced in the coming weeks.
