BASKETBALL star Geoff Bogle has teamed up with Roefield Leisure, Clitheroe, to raise the profile of the sport in the Ribble Valley.

Bogle, who has played with, trained and managed basketball teams from local to national league level, has won numerous titles in the competitive Manchester Basketball League as player and coach and will now pass on his experience to youngsters keen to take up the sport.

As part of developing the centre’s junior courses, which are currently running throughout term time, free coaching sessions will be held on the next two Saturdays, March 12th and 19th.

The venue now boasts new facilities including full size basketball courts, backboards and rings. The sessions are open to all abilities for children aged between eight and 14.

The free taster sessions will run from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for beginners and 11 a.m. until noon for those at intermediate level. Sunday pay and play sessions are also available at Roefield from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

For details about the free sessions or the basketball courses contact Iain Bissett at Roefield on 01200 442188.
