Bridge Building Basketball Exmouth has announced the deadline for entries in the club's identity contest is Wednesday, March 31.

Since last autumn the club has been seeking entries from its members and the community-at-large to help create an identity for the club's competitive teams. Entries can include one, any or all of team colours, nickname, logo and motto. Those who wish to submit a logo, which will feature on all team kits, are asked to use a two-colour format and send an electronic copy of their design to

"Reaching out to the community to ask for their help in creating an identity for our teams fits with the club's goal to be something in which people in the area can get involved with whether or not they play the game," says Christopher Davy, club founder and recent recipient of an England Basketball Level 2 coaching award.

In other club developments, a friendly is being organized for the senior team to line up against Exeter University's Seconds team. A tentative date has been set for the game to take place in the next few weeks and the club is waiting for confirmation of the availability of the university's main sports hall.

This is will be the club's first ever friendly game. Last Friday night the senior squad played a series of scrimmages against the university seconds and based on those performances, head coach Mark Crncich feels confident the team will give a good accounting of itself.

"As a coach of a new team that has players of a wide range of ages and who have never played before, you have to be both a realist and an optimist heading into your first games," says Crncich. "Do I expect them to win? No. Do I expect the team to compete and play hard? Yes."

He adds: "I was very impressed with what the boys showed in the scrims against the university seconds. They showed signs of all the training they have put it can result in good showings in game situations. I was especially pleased with the way our under-16 who played that night were not intimidated and the contributions that made at both ends of the floor."

Senior practices continue to be held on Friday nights from 7 pm to 9 pm and under-16s on Mondays from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Sports Hall at Exmouth Community College. Players are charged £4 per session for Friday sessions and £2 per session on Mondays, with the first session for any new player free.
