100 participants from the Shell Twilight Sessions in the West of Scotland attended the Glasgow Rocks Professional game against Worcester Wolves at the Emirates Arena, Glasgow. This gives the members of Shell Twilight the opportunity to meet other programmes from different areas, while supporting the players who visit the sessions throughout the season.
Players from Shell Twilights newest session, The Stranraer Ravens also had the opportunity before the game to play on the professional court against the Whitehill Wolves. Described by one participant as a ‘Once in a lifetime opportunity’ and the first games for many, both teams showed some great skills and sportsmanship throughout the day. Support both on and off the court was fantastic, with all participants encouraging each other in every game.
The sessions were later joined by members from the Bellahouston Hustlers and Wellhouse Warriors to watch what proved to be a tremendous game between the Rocks and Wolves. After a tense ending which saw the game go to overtime, the Rocks came out on top with a buzzer beater by Jajuan Smith much to the excitement of the Shell Twilight players.
After Christmas the sessions will meet again at the Emirates Arena for the West Regional Tournament. If you would like to find out more about Shell Twilight please have a look through our web page.
