In recognition of international Women’s day this year, Evo Basketball hosted its first ever girls only festival at Doha College, West bay.
Evo Basketball currently has over 60 females participating in its programmes ranging from 4 – 37 years old.
During this event, the girls played games against other Evo participants of their age and then had the chance to watch the women’s team (including Coach Jenny) in action against QB Hoops. This was a great opportunity for our young players to showcase the skills they have learnt during their Evo sessions into a competitive match situation. The girl’s game was extremely close and it was fantastic to see so many girls displaying excellent skill levels and superb sportsmanship, in a fun, engaging, competitive environment.
After the excitement of the girl’s game, it was time for the women’s team to take to the court. The team put on a great display of team basketball, sharing and moving the ball whilst creating lots of scoring opportunities. It was fantastic to have to support of the younger players throughout the game even creating their own team chant which put a smile on all faces.
Evolution Basketball hopes to continue to develop and grow the girls’ basketball programme, providing more and more opportunities like this. It truly was a fantastic day celebrating all of their hard work and efforts in basketball so far.
