Chessington Sports Centre will forever hold fond memories for London Acers women’s basketball team.

The Hampton-based club stormed their way to lifting the Surrey Women’s Cup trophy last week with a 57-37 triumph over Camberley Eagles.

Acers, coached by Mal Gander, finished second in the Surrey Basketball League this season – a league they have competed in since 2007.

And James Parsons, managing director of club sponsors Sportsbeat, was rightly proud.

“The girls have had a great season and to see them win the cup was the icing on the cake,” he said.
