Wolves are born!
All roads lead to the d hotel on Saturday afternoon (September 7) when a family fun day will mark the official launch of Drogheda Wolves Basketball Club.
After months of planning the town's two former basketball clubs, Sparks and Bullets, have merged to become one and all are welcome to the free event on Saturday to celebrate the new beginnings.
PRO Marie Kierans said: 'This is very much a family day. Our club is all about community and we invite everyone along. We have members aged from 6 years of age right upwards and this is an opportunity for everyone to mingle in a relaxed capacity.'
'There'll be face painting, a BBQ, a DJ and of course some tricky basketball challenges for everyone to enjoy. We have 18 teams competing in this our first season and we look forward to seeing all our players and their families on the day. "
The family fun day takes place from 2-6pm and Marie points out that it is the perfect chance for those thinking of becoming involved in Wolves to find out more about the club.
"Our team of coaches will be there as well as our committee members who are all working hard to really put Drogheda on the map nationally and internationally for basketball."
"The Club is extremely grateful to the d Hotel who have come on board as one of our main sponsors and will be pulling out all the stops to ensure a pleasant day for all." Check out more details on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/droghedabasketball/
