The East London Phoenix Women’s Premier League team is the University of East London’s first sporting franchise in its history. It marks another statement of intent for a programme that over the past decade has come from sporting newcomer, to one of the leading dual career universities in the UK.
The university is a stone’s throw from the centre of London and boasts some of the best indoor facilities in capital. The home arena “SportsDock” is part of the London 2012 sporting legacy. The team will be playing in the very same place as the US Olympic team trained in 2012, meaning they are in illustrious company for those who have graced the hardwood. SportsDock is already home to the BBL and WBBL London Lions teams making it a top choice for both student and non-student athletes. A high talented support team and a drive for excellence makes London the destination of choice for aspirational players looking to progress to the next level.
The local community plays a key role in the university’s unique identity and reflects the inclusive and diverse student population. It provides opportunity to many from the local community to further their education, whilst inspiring and raising aspirations of young people through its Sport in Your Futures Programme. The franchise team will be no different. It will do this by offering opportunities for its players and students to develop skills on and off the court, all possible by being a student led franchise. It’s your opportunity to be the next role model in the lives of those in the community and help to shape the next generation.
