A new chapter in women’s basketball and an important step forward. Our U16s started their journey in the Cadiz League on Friday as DAMEX UDEA GABBA. It is a vital piece in developing our girls’ basketball and yet another opportunity of many for them to grow and develop as players. As an association we want to offer our young players every chance to enjoy the game by improving their basketball abilities and personal skills: resilience, communication and perseverance. We didn’t have the most ideal start plagued with injuries and notable absences but to quote a good friend, this is a marathon not a sprint. #webelieve

THURSDAY 5TH OCTOBER 2023
The late Darren McMahon passed away after a brave fight against cancer on 4th April 2021, in the middle of the second COVID lockdown. Bavaria Blue Stars, the basketball club he played for throughout most of his too short life, organised a memorial tournament which saw many of his former team mates and other players from the club’s teams, young and not so young, take part in, together with invited team RCA Bricklayers. The memorial trophy, won by Darren’s former team, was presented to co-captains Angel Guerrero and Nicky Gracia by Darren’s mother, after the club’s Life President, John Gonçalves, had addressed all participants, which included the referees, Shane and Karl Bassett, whose participation was greatly appreciated by the organisers, particularly as Darren was also a very active referee. The trophy was given back to Darren’s mother by the co-captains as a memento of his notable contributions to the club’s successes. All then moved to Team 54 for a paella and drinks.

DAMEX UDEA GABBA
FRIDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2023
GABBA and the Algeciras club DAMEX UDEA, whose President and majority shareholder is Gibraltarian Sam Buxton, a prominent member of Gibraltar’s National Team, set off on an ambitious project, designed to expose our very young players to a more competitive level of basketball than they have here and, as a result, raise the standard of our National Teams in years to come.Boys and girls selections at under 16 and under 12 categories, and a boys under 14 selection, will play under the name DAMEX UDEA GABBA in the Cádiz Provincial League competitions this season, with the home games being played in Algeciras.This is a big opportunity which has been gladly accepted by GABBA, in the knowledge that there is nothing better than regular competition of this type to attract boys and girls to basketball.Immediate benefits will, hopefully, be reaped by the under 16 selections, who will, no doubt use these competitions as valuable preparation for the FIBA Europe competitions in July next year.They start competing this weekend, when 3 teams will all be travelling.The u16 girls play twice: on Friday in Conil, against Mergablo (tip-off 8:15 pm) and on Sunday in Ubrique, against CABU (tip-off 11:00 am);The u16 boys play against Chipiona on Sunday (tip-off 11:45 am).The u14 boys play on Sunday in Ubrique, against CABU (tip-off 11:00 am).
