School Games U11 Basketball Tournament at Inspire Suffolk 

Tuesday 6th February 2018

Eleven members of the basketball club took part in the tournament which ran on the format; first half girls only and then at half time the boys took over.  Each game was 10 minutes long, but luckily we had breaks in between.

The first game was very exciting with the girls first half finishing at 2-2 and the boys second half finishing at 1-1.

The second game saw the girls hold their own to finish at 0-0, but the boys were up against a strong opposition losing out 3-1.

The third game saw us starting to tire and the girls half saw them lose out 2-0 when tired legs meant they didn’t retreat in time to defend.  The boys also lost out 1-0, despite several attempts to equalise.

We played Witnesham for 5th/6th place and this was a very tight game with the girls going down 1-0, the boys put in every effort to equalise, but unfortunately time ran out!


The children all enjoyed the afternoon and worked well together as a team, in some very fast paced games.  Caitlin won the School Games fair play award, which came as no surprise as she played every game with a smile on her face!  Well done to everyone for a great sporting attitude throughout and to all the parents who helped transport the children.
