Sheffield Sharks playing and plans

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

Given her role as a Parliamentary Sports Champion for South Yorkshire, Meg Munn MP was delighted to accept an invitation from the Sheffield Sharks basketball team to visit and hear about their community plans and projects.

Meg met the Chair, Yuri Matischen, and Sarah Backovic who is the Managing Director. They told her about the various education and health related programmes the Sharks, and their sponsors B. Braun, run across the city. These include dance and basketball clubs, as well as App designing and video competitions. Meg agreed to work with the Sharks to really push the young peoples and health agendas across Sheffield.

Following her chat with Yuri and Sarah, Meg was thrilled to be invited courtside to watch the Sharks in their quarter final BBL Cup tie against the Durham Wildcats. The Sharks came out all guns blazing but the Wildcats battled back throughout the game. However, a brilliant final quarter performance sent the Sheffield team through to the semi-finals (70 58).

Meg said:

“I was delighted to meet Yuri and Sarah to hear about the fantastic work they do to engage with young people across Sheffield. It’s great to see a professional sports team being responsible and helping those from less privileged backgrounds.

Although tense at times, I really enjoyed my first Sharks game and the team kept us entertained from start to finish. I will be rooting for them in the semi-finals. Go Sharks!”
