Sheffield Medics Basketball
• Applied to the Alumni Foundation in February 2014
• Awarded £500
Sheffield Medics Basketball Club applied to the Alumni Foundation in February 2014. The club has been successful for 10 years and attracts both male and female participants. The Club wanted funding to invest in new kit and equipment. The £500 award enabled the Club to purchase two high-quality indoor basketballs, five bibs and a whistle. The funding also enabled the club to subsidise the purchase of a new kit for the players. The equipment that was bought has been essential for the club. The whistles and bibs have greatly facilitated training sessions and the high quality basketballs used in training and competitive matches have made a great difference. The remaining funding went towards hosting a charity tournament on 26th October 2014. The competition saw the current Sheffield Medics Basketball team play against the Sheffield Medics Basketball Old Boys team. Both teams competed in the tournament along with eight other teams from around the country.
