Last week Shell Twilight Basketball held its first ever Girls Night In at Glasgow Club Drumoyne in Govan. The night brought together participants from the Govan and Wellhouse girls-only sessions, for an evening of celebration and empowerment.
The girls came together for a basketball tournament with each team consisting of a mixture of participants from each of the two sessions. Following the basketball tournament, the girls were given the chance to try out Brazilian Jiu Jitsu run by World Champion, Erin Wilson, and football, with Rangers Women’s and Girl’s Academy Manager, Amy McDonald, followed by some snacks and goodie bags.
The event was organised by our Shell Twilight Basketball Coordinator Preeti Jassal, along with Shell Twilight Ambassador and volunteer Amanda Hiddleston, who took an active role in supporting Preeti with the planning and running of the event.
Funded by Spirit of 2012 and Cashback for Communities, the Shell Twilight Girls initiative was launched in early 2018. Based upon the Shell Twilight Basketball programme, combining sports with education and life skills, the Shell Twilight Girls programme is aimed at encouraging inactive girls into sport in a safe and friendly environment.
