Annual Vince Marriott Event

Vince Marriott

Our Club founder and Coach sadly passed away April the 10th 2021

Vince was selfless, inspirational and a great role model for young athletes. Vince Provided 100s of players with opportunities to play basketball and reach their potential. Vince was the head coach for the Trowbridge Hawks and also led our Junior programme. Vince encouraged Trowbridge players to reach their potential with many Trowbridge players playing at the Bristol Academy. Vince later became part of the Bristol Flyers Junior programme as a coach. Vince also was a tutor and helped develop young coaches and referees.

The event has been put together so that we can all come together an honour Vince. We will also raise money for Vince’s chosen charity Kidney research UK.

The event will showcase all basketball at our Club including past and present senior men and women and also junior players from school years 3-11.
