Blazers academy male team took on GB Ladies in a friendly game at their training facility Worcester Arena to help the ladies prepare for their upcoming European Championship Games. The game was played in a competitive but friendly manner with Head coach Peter Buckle frequently stopping to get coaching points across to his players. The scoreboard was not important although the Academy did end on the high side of a 70-62 finish.
Several of the Academy Ladies team came to watch and the occasion wasn't one to be forgotten as Bec Beer clearly expressed "It was great to watch some Olympic athletes in action, they are just so good. We got front row seats too. It was also really interesting to see the sports science that was used as part of their training and the equipment and facilites were incredible too."
