Developing Local Basketball Talent

Business Ambassador Underwoods Solicitors would like to congratulate Hemel Storm who have recently won funding from the National Lottery to further develop their Basketball Programme within the local community. This funding will be used to expand their coaching offering to local schools to further engage basketball participation within younger age groups.

The programme will shortly be underway in a number of local Primary and Junior schools where Hemel Storm favourite Michael Darlow will be running coaching sessions on a weekly basis until the end of the summer term.

In addition to this Lottery funding, Underwoods Solicitors have been personally thanked by Hemel Storm for their continued commitment to the club and for agreeing to support the project through the provision of additional practice clothing.

Hemel Storm Basketball Chairman Tony Humphrey comments “On behalf of everybody connected to Hemel Storm, I would like to thank the National Lottery and Underwoods for these contributions. This funding will make a real difference in our ability to reach more young people and allow us to introduce this fantastic game. Our basketball programme here at Storm is purposely being built around the momentum and success of our senior men’s team which we hope is inspiring the next generation of basketball talent from within our local area“.
