raised of £5,000 target by 110 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,100 to Support the FIMBA GB over 55 Women’s Basketball Team as they represent GB at the European Championships in Spain 2022

    Funded on Tuesday, 7th June 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    After a rigorous, nationwide selection process and regular training sessions, the final FIMBA GB o55 Women’s Basketball Team has been selected - we are all so proud and eager to do our best and represent! We have two excellent, highly professional Coaches at the helm and a dedicated and very capable Team Manager

    Our hard-working team (players and staff) is talented, dedicated and committed, on and off the court. We come from all walks of life, all parts of Great Britain and are all aged between 55 and 59 years old. We strive to motivate and encourage other women who think they are beyond being able to continue to play the sport they love, and act as role models to young women in basketball, leading by example and proving that they can have a long and enjoyable engagement with basketball.

    We are also extremely proud to be the first ever GB women’s over 55s basketball team to represent on the world stage.

    The cost to the team to participate in this event is estimated at £20,000, a very small fraction of which has been covered by corporate sponsorship - the team is otherwise entirely self-financing. There are still significant ongoing costs for training, physio equipment, travel and accommodation expenses, for which we are asking support.

    The FIMBA GB over 55s women’s basketball team thank you for your generous help as they endeavour to bring back the silverware to GB!

    Adrian, Stu, Karen G., Helen M., Barbra, Janis, Suzy, Pam, Wendy, Maria, Karen E., Helen S., Helen S., Denise, Sam.
