Chairman's Note 2017
Welcome to GB Masters basketball in Manchester which will be our 22nd year of running this tournament. We have grown from a 4 team men's event to over 60 teams from all over the globe competing, introducing the women's competition in 2007.
We welcome returning teams that have come back year after year as well as new teams. We hope you will enjoy the weekend full of basketball as well as catching up with old friends and making new ones.
This will be my first tournament as Chairman having been involved on the Committee for the past 10 years as Membership and Officials Co-Ordinator. I am supported by Phil White, Vice Chairman and Tournament Director, Martin Shaw, Treasurer, Graham Murray, Fixtures Co-ordinator and Grace Jacca who has been seconded onto the Committee to assist with officials in Manchester.
This year sees the first time we have joined up with the Polly Camp. Each year the Polly Camp runs a referees camp helping referees gain experience and knowledge to get them to take a step up from Level II to Level III and also helping Level III referees gain knowledge and assistance to help them step up to Level IV. This is a pilot scheme and we are confident this will be the start of a great partnership.
Wishing you all the players, officials and supporters all the best over the weekend.
