Hello and welcome back to 2015. Happy New year to you all. The year begins with the Betty Codona Classic this weekend at All Saints. The competition involves the top 8 teams from the WBBL (Nottingham, Northumbria, Leicester, Cardiff, Manchester, Barking Abbey, Sevenoaks and of course your own Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters). All 8 teams will compete on Friday 2nd January:
12.00noon Manchester v Leicester
2.15pm Hatters v Cardiff
4.30pm Northumbria v Barking Abbey
6.45pm Nottingham v Sevenoaks
On Saturday all eight teams will play again. The 4 winners from Friday will compete in the semi – finals for the main prize whilst the 4 losers will compete in the semi – finals of a plate competition. The games begin at 9.30am with the last tip at 4.15pm. On Sunday the two finals of the competition take place at 10am (plate) and 1pm (BCC). Tickets will be available on the door – £10 per day or £20 for 3 days with concessions and family tickets available. This should be a great weekend so hope to see you there.
Finally congratulations to Vanessa Ellis who has won the WBBL Coach of the Month for December (second month running) and to Stephanie Gandy (the Team Captain) who has won Player of the Month! This was a great end to 2014….let’s hope the BCC is a great start to 2015!
