Student Profile

Team BC Basketball member Jack Williams

Jack Williams

Playing for Team BTC Basketball and the link with Bridgwater Bucs men’s has helped me to mentally and physically prepare myself for University Basketball but also to play in the National league with Cardiff Archers. It has given me leadership skills and the confidence to go onto to play at a highly competitive level.
