We have received the following notice from the City of Birmingham Rockets basketball team! Have a read below.


As part of our Return to Play plans we are really pleased to provide details of our Female Basketball Open Day  event taking place at Nechells Wellbeing Centre, the home of City of Birmingham Rockets! 

The event signals the re-launch of our Girl’s and Women’s programmes after the challenges that the COVID  pandemic has brought for everyone. We have received lots of interest from girls across Birmingham  interesting in playing basketball out of school and now we would like to invite any pupils from your school to  join us in attending our open day event on Saturday 28th May as shown below: 

12.10-1.40pm – Under 12 and 14 Girls (Current Years 8 and younger) 

1.45- 3.15pm – Under 16 and 18 Girls (Current Years 9,10,11 and 12) 

3.20- 4.50pm – Open Age Women (Year 13 and older) 

The sessions will consist of learning new skills, having fun and meeting new people. Rockets operate  in a friendly environment and welcome players of all abilities! 

To operate within COVID guidelines and manage numbers effectively, we ask any girls wishing to  attend to complete the link shown below: 


Thank you in advance for any support you can give to our Open Day. At Rockets we pride ourselves on  developing not only good basketball players but good people too. Many girls and boys in our  programmes receive mentoring and leadership guidance to support them in realising their potential  in life. We have over 300 playing members, 900 weekly participants and great relationships with  Birmingham Schools where we run a range of community activities enabling us to offer local playing  opportunities to children of any age and ability. 

If you have any girls interested in joining who cannot make our open day event, please let us know  and we will ensure they are accommodated at an alternative time. Please feel free to contact us on  the address shown below for further information or visit our website www.cobrockets.co.uk
