League Championship Win for the Chiswick Gators

The successful Chiswick Gators U14 team

April 23, 2024

The U14 age group at the Chiswick Gators Basketball club have finished top in its conference in Basketball England’s National League.

The youngsters who train at Hammersmith Academy near Ravenscourt Park, topped its division and then won play-offs against other conference champions in the London area.

They will now play in Basketball England’s U14 Premier Division next season – the highest tier possible in their age group.

It means that they will be competing against the best teams from across the country.

The club on Cathnor Road was founded by head coach Mike Kwentoh just before the London 2012 Olympics, and now has 350 members at different age levels.

Sessions run on Wednesdays in term time from 6pm to 7.30pm. For more details visit the Chiswick Gators website or email chiswick.gators@gmail.com or call Mike on 07961 736 013.
