The £200,000 would have a massive impact of the clubs ability to develop and grow in three key areas. The funding would cover the cost of a basketball outreach for primary schools in Edinburgh aiming to build interest and participation amongst boys and girls keen to learn about the sport. It would also fund the development of club facilities offering youngster a dedicated base to train. Planning is already underway to create an additional court so that the youngsters don’t have to train independently at their schools. And finally the funding would make it possible for the club to invest in much-needed gym equipment.
