Rest easy Joe, we've got this.

Recently we lost a unique and widely loved member of our basketball family.
Joe Grainger most recently served the game as Chairman of Gloucester Saxons. Not only that but Joe co-ordinated Glozball, training of officials and coaches, matches for multiple junior age group teams and so enabled thousands of court hours for players from Gloucester and beyond.
We will celebrate all that Joe brought to our lives properly very soon. In the meantime, our thoughts go out to Joe’s family, close friends and every life he touched.
Rest easy Joe, we’ve got this.
