Basketball is a sport close to the heart of a lot of Crest’s students. We have recently been entered into the Jr. NBA (National Basketball Association), a league setup to replicate the highest level of basketball in the world. We will compete against schools from around London and further afield for the first time in Crest history.
As part of this we recently attended an event at CitySport, the sports and fitness centre of City University London, which taught students more about the game and benefits it can bring. It also gave students the chance to meet past and present stars of the NBA, considered to be the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world.
Sabrina Badawy, Year 8, said of the day: “I had a lot of fun meeting NBA players and training with professionals, it’s something I’d love to do again”.
