Help­ing Fly­ers hit new heights

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

A BRIS­TOL law firm is help­ing Bris­tol Fly­ers Women’s bas­ket­ball team reach new heights.

Com­mer­cial law firm Meade King has agreed to be the team’s main kit spon­sor as part of the firm’s drive to sup­port women’s and grass­roots sport in the city.

Es­tab­lished in the 2015/16 sea­son, Bris­tol Fly­ers Women have quickly be­come one of the lead­ing fe­male bas­ket­ball teams in the South West.

They com­pete in Eng­land’s Na­tional League Di­vi­sion 1 and play their games at the SGS Wise Arena. Un­der the guid­ance of exF­ly­ers men’s cap­tain Gareth Till, Fly­ers women have been a com­pet­i­tive force in their first few sea­sons back in na­tional league bas­ket­ball, reach­ing the play-offs twice.

Gareth said: “We are re­ally ex­cited Meade King has agreed to spon­sor the women’s team and help put women’s sport on the map. We are a self-sup­port­ing team with big am­bi­tions so any help we re­ceive from lo­cal busi­nesses is very much ap­pre­ci­ated.” » Bris­tol Fly­ers is look­ing to re­cruit more girls to join its un­der 10s, 12s, 14s and un­der 16s teams.
