He is viewed among his peers as one of England’s most proactive basketball enthusiasts and has hosted a number of international tournaments in the UK which have included teams and officials from across the globe.

WCBT2018 was its 4th annual event which included teams from the USA, Poland, England, Wales and Canada.
"I am proud to be associated with the award winning WCBT and supporting British basketball with this exciting concept. The growth is a testament to the unique ideas of the WCBT and our aims to bring the basketball world closer together.
I am really looking to the plans we have ahead,and working with an experienced group of visionaries who are not afraid to take a risk for the good of the sport.
