Southend Swifts Basketball Club held a 12 hour basketball marathon at their home court in the Eastwood Academy, Leigh-on-Sea on Sunday July 21st 2013 in support of the Breast Cancer Campaign.
The event started at 9am and play continued throughout the day until 9pm. Over 80 players took part during that time with ages varying from 9 years old to 50+ (i.e. Steve Pearl who was personally sponsored to the tune of £100 by a parent who wanted to see if he could actually play the game! And he could!)
The target to raise was £1000 but thanks to the fantastic generosity of sponsors and the excellent work of the players we raised a total of £2821! Well done everyone!
The Under 13 and 15 boys showed their potential with playoff fixtures this season.
Ball Again is back from 8-10pm on a Monday at the Eastwood Academy
