Primary school basketball tournament at Abbeywood Community School, Stoke Gifford, Bristol.

Seb Doyle, Primary Liaison Officer at Abbeywood School writes:

On Tuesday 24th February, Year 5 teams from Charborough Road, Filton Hill and St Michael’s Primary Schools took part in a basketball tournament at Abbeywood Community School in Stoke Gifford.

The event capped off two term’s worth of basketball coaching which had been delivered by Mr Doyle in each primary school. The level of skill on show throughout all three primaries was unbelievable, especially considering some of the pupils were only introduced to the sport a few months ago.

There were some really close games with each school winning matches. The winner of the whole tournament was Charborough Road, who ended up with an incredible 132 points scored throughout the games.

The prize was a free ticket for all the team members and a number of staff and parents to attend a Bristol Flyers game. We all had fun watching the Flyers beat Leeds Force comfortably and the pupils even got to go on court at half-time to have a shoot out. Well done to all the three primaries for taking part!
