Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st September saw our Under 13, 14, 16 and 18 boys teams all in action as we hosted pre season tournaments.IMG_0584

On Saturday the annual COB Invitational Tournament saw Peckham Pride and Cheshire Wire return to Birmingham to play in the Under 16 and 18 tournament. All games as usual were played at a terrific level with some hard fought games that were prefect preparation for the season ahead for our teams. The Under 18s finished with a 1&1 record as the talented and well coached Peckham team won the event, whilst the Under 16s lost a close game to Peckham before tiring against the well drilled Cheshire side.

A packed house at Dame Elizabeth enjoyed a fabulous day of basketball as the COB teams competed hard against 2 of the strongest clubs in the country. (Right v Peckham)S

On Sunday it was the turn of the Under 13 and 14 teams as again our tough northern opponents, Cheshire Wire visited Birmingham. The Northerners kept the slight edge in close encounters but COB has plenty to be optimistic about following exciting performances in each game. The coaches are happy to have games under their belt and continue to progress with the season countdown now on!
