As a local law firm, we’re really keen to support women’s sport in the city and to really be part of our local community.

Bristol Flyers Women’s team started in 2015 and are currently sitting at the top of National Basketball League Division One after five games. 

Playing at SGS Wise Arena in Filton, the team are keen to push on under the guidance of Gareth Till, who used to captain the Bristol Flyers men’s team.  

Gareth said ‘We’re really pleased that Meade King is our new main kit sponsor. They’re helping us to put women’s sport on the map. The whole team really appreciates help from local businesses and we are a self-supporting team.’

Our Managing Partner James Hawkins said ‘Women’s sport is growing and Bristol Flyers Women is working so hard to develop themselves as a team but also as a positive influence to young women and girls here in Bristol. We’re delighted that we can help them to achieve this and wish them the best for the season.’

Sue Richardson, our Marketing Executive said ‘We keep the staff informed of all the Women’s Flyers games and some of us have been down to SGS Arena to support them and will continue to do so throughout the season. I’d really recommend basketball if you’ve never been before. It’s fast, skilled and very exciting to watch.’

Along with the excellent work the women’s team is doing on the court, they are also focused on becoming a positive influence to encourage girls to take part in basketball. They already have girls competing in under 10s, under 12s, under 14s and under 16s teams with more than 60 girls training at least twice a week.

Bristol Flyers are still looking to recruit more girls to join. Please contact bristolflyersgirls@gmail.com for more information.
