The second Hoopsfix Pro-Am built upon its inaugural year, packing out Brixton Rec on a weekly basis while amassing over 24,000 views on the YouTube live streams.
Working with Lambeth Council, Contested app and Stance Socks, the Pro-Am returned but moved to Brixton with every week featuring a six-game slate consisting of two women’s games and four men’s games taking place from June 18th until July 16th.
The five week summer league brought together the best of British basketball, both seasoned pros and top prospects; targeting elite level players, some of whom are rarely seen in organised competition in the UK.
Headlining names include Great Britain Senior internationals GB captain Carl Wheatle, 2x BBL MVP and GB international Justin Robinson, Kavell Bigby-Williams, Akwasi Yeboah, Jordan Williams, Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye, Orlan Jackman, while on the female side, Ire Ozzy-Momodu – fresh back from EuroBasket Women, along with her GB teammates Georgia Gayle, Shanice Beckford-Norton, who won MVP, Shequila Joseph, Chantel Charles and Melita Emanuel-Carr.
England and GB international, Shanice Beckford-Norton, was named women’s MVP after standout performances every week, while Kayne Henry, who has just finished his rookie season in Germany, picked up Men’s MVP.
Plans are in place to continue the Pro-Am for the third straight year in 2024.
