“Congratulations to all of our winners in the North East!” said Duncan Whalley, Chief Operations Officer for Basketball England. “It is a credit to the North East Region that they were able to select a winner in each category, highlighting the strength of the Basketball community across the region. Well done to all involved and the winners who were rightly recognised for their contributions.” 

All of the regional winners across the 12 award categories will be reviewed by a panel, with a total of three nominees per category then being shortlisted to be considered for National Awards.
