Bristol Sport: New arena planned for Bristol Flyers
Dec 8, 2017, 10:23 pm
Ashton Gate

Bristol City's home, Ashton Gate, is near to Ashton Vale - the proposed site of a new training ground

There are plans to build a new indoor sports arena adjacent to Ashton Gate to house the Bristol Flyers basketball team's games, the BBC has learned.

Bristol Sport's proposed 3,000-capacity venue may also host netball, badminton, boxing and live entertainment events.

The umbrella organisation that runs Bristol City also has plans for a new training ground at nearby Ashton Vale.

The plans will be subject to a period of public consultation, having received initial backing from the city council.

As well as the Flyers and the Robins, Bristol Rugby, Bristol Ladies Rugby, Bristol City Women FC and the Bristol Jets Badminton team are all part of Steve Lansdown's Bristol Sport brand.

A triple-court basketball hall would also be built alongside the new arena, inspired by the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester, while the training ground at Ashton Vale would include an indoor 3G pitch.

Bristol does not currently have a franchise in the Netball Superleague - Britain's elite netball competition - but the proposals state Superleague matches could be played in the new indoor venue.

Meanwhile, long-running plans for an entertainments arena near Temple Meads railway station, which is in doubt after a "value-for-money" review by the council, has suffered numerous lengthy delays since initial approval in 2014.

A new Bristol City Council consultation document, outlining a five-year strategy to 2022, also puts forward other major sports facilities, including a new or enhanced swimming pool in the east of the city and multi-court sports halls across Bristol.

KAPOULAS TO LEAD ENGLAND AT COMMONWEALTH GAMES

Andreas Kapoulas has been appointed as the new England senior men’s head coach ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Renowned for his work in the BBL as head coach of the Flyers, Kapoulas will continue his role with the BBL side, with assistant coach Nick Burns stepping up to cover the fixtures that conflict with the competition.

Having been appointed the Great Britain Under-20s head coach in March 2016, Kapoulas most recently led his side to promotion into Division A at the Under-20 European Championships with a bronze medal finish.

The 2015 Molten BBL Coach of the Year has a wealth of experience and knowledge on the international stage having also coached England Under-15s in 2010/11 and the U16s side in 2012/13.

"I am very honoured to be selected as the England men's head coach." said Kapoulas.

"It's a great time for our sport after a successful summer for the national team programme and we have an exciting opportunity to continue this momentum with the Commonwealth Games in Australia.

"We have plenty of work ahead of us to ensure we make the most of our preparations. I look forward to working with the players and staff towards a successful campaign."

Great Britain Under-18s head coach Alan Keane and Great Britain Under-16s head coach James Vear have also been announced as assistant coaches.

Womens Open Sessions
Oct 5, 2017, 12:05 am

Hi all,

Please see image and forward the info to your team members and anybody who might be interested.

This is a great opportunity for women's basketball and we would like to encourage all WEBBA members to attend and also if you know of any coaches who might be interested to run a session to get in touch.

The open summer sessions were a big success and from the feedback we received we feel this might be a good opportunity to get players from various teams together for a casual, friendly and free of charge 2 hours of basketball.

See you there.

Alex
