We hope that you find the website interesting and helpful, and that it provides you with an insight into the wide variety of programmes that Basketball Wales facilitates.

 

Basketball Wales is extremely grateful for the support and assistance of our main sponsors, Legea and Molton – our sincere thanks to you. Our partnerships with you are very much appreciated.

Jun 17, 2016, 3:37 pm

 

Basketball Wales would like to thank Vets Now who have kindly sponsored the Wales Senior women's International team who are heading to Gibraltar in 9 days time to compete in the FIBA European championships for Small Countries.

 

All the players, coaching staff and team management would like to extend a big thanks to Vets Now for their kind sponsorship contribution.

 

Vets Now is dedicated to improving the lives of pets and vets by providing emergency care when most vets' surgeries are closed. For pets, we're an out-of-hours accident and emergency service. For vets, we're trusted, expert partners providing an extension to the practice's daytime activity.

 

Vets Now was founded in 2001 by Richard Dixon, a veterinary surgeon who understood the stress of being on-call round the clock while trying to maintain a decent quality of life. His solution was Vets Now - a dedicated out of hours emergency and critical care service for pets.
