Getting kids back on the court


A series of bastketball sessions held through the summer holidays so far have been a huge success, according to their organisers.

Milton Keynes Basketball Club have been urging youngsters to come outside and give the game a go as they hold daily coaching session to get more people into the game.

The free tasters are being held all over Milton Keynes throughout August, with the hope that more people in the area take up the sport.

Angela Turner, who has helped organise the sessions said: “They have been hugely successful so far.

“We’ve had a lot of support from people, and a lot of kids coming down to play basketball.

“We want to let people know the sport is thriving in Milton Keynes, even though the professional team has gone.

“Our coaches enjoy teaching the kids, they’ve got a huge passion for the game and they want everyone else to enjoy it like they do.”
