Schools to compete for Flyers Cup

The Bristol Sport Foundation will once again host the Flyers Basketball Cup – a primary school competition for Year 5 and 6 children - at the home of the Bristol Flyers. 

The free competition will take place from on Thursday, April 4th from 4.30pm-6.30pm at the SGS WISE Arena.

Schools from across the city will compete for the cup, in the same arena as the Flyers professional team, in a pooled format of short games.

Teams should be made up of five players from a maximum squad size of eight, with at least one female player on the court at all times.

"We are really excited about the 2018/19 Bristol Flyers Schools Cup," said community manager, Claire Buckingham.

"It will be a day to celebrate the development of basketball within our schools and will be a chance to bring teams from each region of Greater Bristol to SGS Arena for the finals day.

"I would like to say a big thank you to the School Games Organisers for their help getting the teams to SGS Arena, the home of the Bristol Flyers."

If your school is interested in finding out how to enter this event please contact Flyers community manager, Claire Buckingham.
