Leicester Riders - Shoot 2 The Future arrives at Wreake Valley
November 5, 2015
Another fantastic opportunity for Leicester Riders has arisen in the community as Raynsway Properties has teamed up with Leicester Riders Foundation and Pukka Pies! Open to ages 12 and above, every Thursday from 6.30pm-8.00pm hoopers will be able to discover the game of basketball with the guidance of experience Leicester Riders coaches.
The Riders Foundation community team have worked hard to secure a venue and link in with some of the key people from the Melton Behaviour Partnership based at Wreake Valley College and surrounding schools and partnerships. Helen Masoum and Amy Ginetta, representing the partnership, are very keen to engage their students through sport and basketball is one of the greatest mediums to provide this opportunity.
Community Manager Mandy Payne is excited to see the partnership and the sessions flourish.
“I have worked to bring in agencies from the surrounding area to help us with this project. Charnwood Borough Council have also allowed us to liaised with the ‘Go Getta’ project to promote the fantastic opportunities this sport can provide.”
As a testament to the partnership of such great working agencies the launch session tomorrow will feature Leicester Riders very own Anthony Rowe, Barry Lamble and National League Head Coach Tahir Hajat. Not to mention the Mayor of Charnwood, Andrews from Fusion Leisure centres and Amey Rayns from Raynsway Properties who will also be there to support the launch.
