A Warwickshire basketball team is sporting a shiny new kit – thanks to sponsorship from ehB Residential.
The Warwickshire Hawks Women’s National League team, which is based in Moreton Morrell, will be competing in the Division 2 North League this season.
ehB Residential MD Edward Bromwich explained: “We are keen to support local community activities – and the Warwickshire Hawks offer great sporting opportunities for people of all ages. Taking part in team sports is good for mental and emotional wellbeing as well as for keeping fit and we’re very happy to add our support to their enterprises.”
Edward’s twin brother Tom, from Bromwich Hardy, is sponsoring the under 15s team.
The club also has an under 11 and under 13 team in the youth basketball league, a men’s team in the Warwickshire Basketball league, and a men’s and women’s team in the basketball England national league.
Last year saw the first season of the club’s youth teams.
Alex Birch, who runs the club, explained: “When we started we had only five players for the under 13s and by the end of the season there were about 12 to 14 registered players. The lads started the season slowly but ended up getting to the final of the youth basketball league in which they lost to a very strong city of Birmingham side. We never thought of getting to a final in our very first year.”

"Dear Mark, Ros and the ehB Team, We can hardly believe we are moving from Cliffe Way today after 54 years. It was a difficult decision to make and you were a great help to us in making it all happen. Many many thanks for everything you have done and best wishes for the future."
