"Starting to teach the fundamentals and the right way to play the game of basketball at a grass roots level is one of the most important tasks that we as leaders and professionals of the game have. Providing a place where kids can play, grow and have fun learning the game is key. I believe that the Malvern Hoops Campaign is very positive and will leave a lasting legacy for basketball players of the future".

"Grassroots is so essential in the development of young athletes and children. The importance of building interests in sports like basketball is crucial in giving a child a more balanced life where it can also teach life skills. The community is very fortunate to have Malvern Hoops working with their youth and coaches dedicated for all the right reasons. Their vision and goals will be reached with the help of all involved including the community".
- John Coffino, Former Cheshire Pheonix Head Coach
"The success of GB basketball has the power to excite and inspire kids to play the sport in their community. To do this, they need better facilities to help those people enjoy the sport in a safe and friendly environment. Local clubs, communities and the volunteers who fundraise and run them are at the heart of every sport. We wish Malvern Hoops every success in raising funds for their outdoor courts and developing the sport in their community."
- Nick Humby, Former British Basketball Federation Chairman
