Penwith College First Competitive Basketball Fixture

Penwith College

Penwith College students participated in their first competitive basketball match on 26th November, against students from Truro College. The Penwith College team that consisted of students from a variety of different areas of study were coached by the Penwith College Sports Activator and members of sports staff from the College. The match was a close fought contest with Truro College just getting the better of Penwith, with the final score of 38-24.

The Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme has been supported the development of the Penwith College team by providing a number of drop-in basketball sessions that are open to all students. The students, who all attend the sessions on a regular basis, were rewarded for their commitment with the opportunity to play a competitive match. The game was well supported, giving the students a positive incentive to keep attending the Health, Wellbeing and Sport project.

Mark Stevens, College Sports Activator said "The students did Penwith College proud today, they never gave up and really enjoyed their first ever fixture. The Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme will continue to deliver initiatives like this and we plan to expand our offer further in the new year."
