OH YES! Popular basketball coach Ruth Eytle has been nominated for a Sporting Equals Award – and public voting is now open.
The Londoner has coached England junior teams and in Basketball England’s Aspire programme and runs Activities 4 U, the popular HoopsB4Work – a weekly adults recreational basketball programme in Central and South London – and coaches the London All Stars women’s team.
Eytle, who recently spoke to Basketball England about her desire to be a role model for female coaches, has been nominated in the Coach of the Year category alongside Darren Moore (football) and Leon Baptiste (athletics).
Ruth was part of the Great Britain Women’s 40+ team that recently competed the World Maxibasketball Championship FIMBA – Mar Del Plata 2023, in Argentina, finishing just outside the quarterfinal places. Ruth is a dedicated community coach and role model for female ballers.
We are delighted to learn of her nomination and wish her all the best. We will be voting for you Ruth, and we hope our GB Maxis’ family and page followers will too. 🏀🇬🇧
