There is a basketball court on the main Newell Grange campus and a floodlit court in the garden of Westcott Boarding House.
The students also have access to the indoor basketball court at Sherborne Sports Centre, where they train.
They play a number of competitive fixtures through the year against other school in the local area.
There is basketball club as an activity every Sunday afternoon. Mostly members of the school basketball team come and train. Actually, I am the basketball captain, so I always train hard on Sunday to help me improve.
Basketball makes me and my friends’ relationships better so we all love playing basketball at times other than just training on Tuesday and Thursday. My friend, David, always shows me how to dunk at that time which I find really interesting as I want to learn from him.
Sometimes some beginners and girls come too, to try a new sport. People enjoy it and I hope more people will like playing basketball.
