Quality Cats Get Ready To Prowl

Coventry’s new women basketball team will be play their opening fixture under the Crusaders umbrella tomorrow.

The Coventry Quality Cats will be opening their National Division One Women's Basketball season when they play away at St Albans.

The Quality Cats are moving their home base from Birmingham to the Coventry Sports and Leisure Centre.

They had a lot of success in recent years, although last season's nail biting finale just kept them in the top division for this season.

The team moved to Coventry to get access to a larger programme to help nurture talent.

Crusaders owner Dip Donaldson said he has been very excited about the expansion of the Crusaders women's programme.

He said:

"It is great to be able to field a top level women's basketball team under the Crusaders canopy after such a short time.

“The Quality Cats willingness to come across to Coventry to train and play their games and integrate with some of our top players has been a tremendous bonus for the club.

“It adds a whole different dimension, besides giving our young ladies a real challenge to aim for."

The Crusaders will continue to run a team in the Leicestershire League  to make sure there are plenty of opportunities for women to play basketball at different levels.

Crusaders girls and ladies training night is Monday at Tile Hill College from 7- 8.30pm. People interested in getting involved should ring 024 76 811751.

The Quality Cats home debut will be before the Bupa Crusaders game on Saturday 30 September.

They will tip-off at 5pm at the Coventry Sports Centre in their opener against Doncaster.

Tickets prices are £4, and will allow entry to the NBL Conference game against Manchester at 7.30 pm.
