Ladies in Lincoln are being encouraged to start the new year by joining a basketball coaching session.

Lincoln Lady Hoops, which starts again on Tuesday 15th January, is for local ladies and girls aged over 15 who want the opportunity to play basketball in Lincoln.

Lucy Willets, Basketball Development Officer based at Active Lincolnshires Partnership, said: “These basketball sessions are great for women who want to get fit and get into shape in the New Year. They will meet new friends and have fun while playing a new sport. Whether you have never played basketball before or want to get back into a sport you used to enjoy, these sessions are ideal for you.”

The sessions, which first started in October, are fun and informal and cost £2.00. No basketball kit is required – just wear comfortable sportswear and trainers.

Dave Piggott, the Basketball Coach, said: ”We want these sessions to be fun but also competitive for those who want to play at a higher level. If we can capture enough interest and build a team, we hope to be playing in a league this year, which will be fantastic for basketball in Lincolnshire.”

The sessions take place every Tuesday from 6.00 – 7.00pm at Christ’s Hospital School, Lincoln.

Just turn up on Tuesday 15th January or for more information and to register your interest, contact Lucy Willets on 01522 585580 or
