Forest Schoolboy Crowned National Champion

After being selected to represent the South East Region, Forest schoolboy Joshua Tavolieri joined the Under-13 Boys South East Regional Basketball Team on Saturday 2nd July in Sheffield for the England Basketball National Finals.

After winning all 6 matches and being put through 6 skills sets over the course of the weekend the team were crowned National Champions on Sunday.

Joshua’s parents and The Forest School are truly proud of Joshua’s achievement at the age of 12.  His parents said: “We feel extremely proud of Joshua who at age 12 keeps working hard towards his goals in and out of school.  To have become and England champion at this young age is truly amazing and we hope there is more to come.”

Joshua can’t afford to sit back and relax though, he has been invited to attend the under 15 boys England Regional Performance Centre next season in order to continue his development.
