On Thursday night our Eagles WBBL team and Academy coaches hosted our biggest girls only clinic yet with over 50 players taking to the Vertu Motors Arena court for the special Her World Her Rules event.

In the UK the Her World Her Rules project, led by FIBA Europe in partnership with GB Basketball, aims to promote women’s and girls’ basketball by working to deliver a range of activity together with WBBL clubs to inspire future female players.

Over 50 girls took to the court for the two-hour clinic with WBBL players Chloe Gaynor and Marina Fernandez supported by Eagles Community Foundation coaching staff to create a fun clinic where skills where learned and friendships were made.

The Eagles will have more girls only clinics over the coming months in addition to the new Monday night sessions for Under 10s, 12s, 14s and 16s which can be booked now on the Newcastle Eagles Nest.
