During the end of July 2022, over 80 players from London Thunder Basketball, Leicester Warriors Basketball, Sussex Bears and Spanish club Óbila Club de Basket joined forces to deliver the international basketball camp in the historic town of Avila , Spain.
The development camp which was open to elite players who are playing National League Basketball included daily basketball scrimmages, training sessions, basketball lectures, team group dynamics and visits around the UNESCO designated town.
The camp is now an annual event now here at London Thunder and allows the opportunity for our players to experience different cultures, learn from top UK basketball coaches alongside their Spanish counterparts but also to make friends from aorund the UK basketball circuit and abroad.
Director of Basketball Steve Bucknall said ‘The camp has been great and I want to say thank you to all the coaches and staff that made the camp possible. This is a great opportunity for any UK player to get better but also to grow as a player in an international environment.’
