The last few months have been quite involved for GSP’s basketball development work in Saudi Arabia. Coach Deb led her local team on an exhibition tour to Paris, competing in friendly games against a local French team. Coach Deb’s team played extremely well and were victorious in their matches.
Coach Bradley has continued his work with a U-12 team. They recently competed in a local tournament, which consisted of six teams. To our knowledge, this was the first time that a girls' basketball tournament has been organized in the city, demonstrating a progressive outlook for female sports. Coach Bradley’s U-12 team competed admirably, finishing in second place, losing only the championship game.
GSP is excited to have a part in basketball development in Saudi Arabia, and we look forward to future tournaments to both improve performance and increase participation in girls' basketball.
