2017 District Basketball

Grove Wood took part in the Basketball District Competition last week. There were 10 teams involved and Grove Wood played brilliantly winning all their group games and progressing to the semi-final. In the semi-final Grove Wood came up against a very strong Thundersley team and after a very close game with end to end basketball, unfortunately we lost 6-8. Mr Banks was very happy with all the children involved.

Last week, our Basketball team went up to Harlow to take place in the Essex Finals.  Eighteen schools attended, which was split into three groups of six.  Grove finished their group as runners up after performing brilliantly against schools from all over the county.

Grove played the eventual winners in the semi-finals, losing narrowly and leaving there in fourth place overall—a fantastic result!  Mr Banks was delighted with the team’s performance.

Our team are stars!

During the Basketball County event, the team can be seen playing whilst a report was carried out by ITV news. The report was about the amount of children participating in sport in Essex. Feel free to copy and paste the link below to see our team becoming TV stars!
