9 June 2023 Sadie Mason
GB Basketball Board Member and GB Maxibasketball programme lead, Sadie Mason MBE, was among the British basketball family who gave the GB Senior Women a great send-off from their camp in Manchester ahead of the teams’ departure to next weeks’ FIBA Women’s Euro Basket in Slovenia. They will travel via France where they will stop for practice sessions and two warm-up games this weekend.
Senior Women’s Head Coach Chema Bucheta’s squad includes a clutch former England & GB U18 players (2012-2018), namely Shequila Joseph, Harriet Ottewill-Soulsby, Savannah Wilkinson, Gabby Nikitinaite, Holly Winterburn and Ire Ozzy-Momodu. During those years, Mason held the role of U18 Women’s National Team Manager and Head of Delegation attending seven successive FIBA U18W European Championships, and was also responsible for player welfare whilst in training/preparation camps. She said:
“It’s fantastic to see the development of these U18 players and their graduation into the senior women’s ranks.  I wish them all the very best for their EuroBasket games; it’s a tough group that includes France, Germany and Slovenia but I believe they, and their teammates, will do Great Britain proud!”
GB Women kick off their Euro Basket 2023 campaign against the host nation Slovenia on Thursday 15 June at 5pm, at the Stozice Arena. You can get a summer pass for just £19.99 to watch ALL games featuring GB Women live on
