The GB Maxis Women’s performance programme began late in the 2017/18 basketball season, and is credited with preparing the first ever British teams (in the 40+ and 50+ categories) to compete in a World Maxibasketball Championships in Helsinki 2019, with their Women’s 50+ team achieving a 4th place championship medal. This success has contributed to the growth of the programme, with opportunities now being offered to players in categories from 35+ through to 55+.
