Essex Blades women’s team in action

If you enjoy the drama of watching sport live don’t miss the chance to watch top-class basketball at Colchester Campus on Saturday for free.

With the Essex Blades men’s team now playing in the National Development League, their fixture list features some premier clubs from around the region all battling for the top spot and the equally talented Essex Blades women’s team face an impressive line-up of clubs at home and away.

There is a double-bill this Saturday when the Essex Blades women’s team play London United at 5pm in the Sports Centre, followed by the men playing Northants Tauras at 7pm. The women will be back in action at home on Saturday 7 November when they play Hertfordshire Warriors at 5pm. The Herts men’s team head to Colchester on Saturday 14 November for their match against the Essex Blades.

The women’s team took a step closer to the final of the National Cup last weekend when they beat the West Herts Flyers 76-36. The quarter-final match against Ipswich will be held in the Sports Centre on Sunday 15 November.

If you like your entertainment with a competitive edge just take your student card with you to the Sports Centre on any of these dates to take up this free offer.
