Meet Our Winner, Pete Daines

Pete is dedicated to bringing his passion of basketball to the whole community. He set up Yateley Silverbacks Basketball Club in 2010 which originally consisted of just a Men's team. Since then he has worked tirelessly to successfullydevelop the club which now consists of 9 teams including: a Ladies team, two Men's teams, a mixed team and Under 11s, U12s, U13s, U14s and U16s teams which will be playing in local youth leagues in the upcoming 2018/2019 season.

Pete is highly regarded at Yateley Manor, in the Wessex League and at Basketball England for his involvement in the game at both local and national level and thoroughly deserving of the accolade of a Local Sports Hero.
