On Friday afternoon our Eagles Community Foundation took possession of the keys to our Eagles Community Arena as we enter the final stages in the construction of our new home.
There’s still much to do, but it was a moment to celebrate how far we’ve come and an opportunity for some of the project team and the new arena management staff to be the first to shoot some hoops in our own venue.
It has been a long time coming for Eagles Managing Director Paul Blake and our Eagles Community Foundation CEO Sam Blake, who brought a basketball to the keys handover in preparation to mark the occasion.
Tickets are on sale now for the opening game of our Eagles Community Arena on Friday 11 January 2019 against Plymouth Raiders:
