Team – Leeds Force
Getting to Leeds
We drove up to Leeds from London. It’s about a 4 hour drive not including stops or any delays on the motorway.
You can also travel by train and can easily return to London the same day. A quick look at National Rail suggests you could get back to most BBL destinations by train the same day though for a few teams you would need to factor in an overnight stay.
I haven’t spent much time in Leeds but there are a range of tourist attractions to keep you entertained if you want to make a weekend out of your trip.
Highlights include an Abbey, a cathedral and a Minster as well as several museums.
Getting to venue –
As we drove we were able to go straight there and make use of the free parking.
If you arrive by train it’s quite a walk so I would suggest a taxi (20 mins) or investigating the local buses.
The venue is a University campus so is close to a lot of local bars and restaurants.
The venue –
This is a sports hall in a University, it’s definitely one of the smaller BBL venues. The seats have backs and are reasonably comfortable.
They don’t have any entertainment on offer other than the music through the speakers that are oddly places at the bottom of the seating area.
Food in venue
Hot dogs, sweets and drinks – soft drinks and beer.
