THE Bradford Dragons are finally back in action this weekend, and even better, they get to enjoy two matches in two days.

They face a ‘home’ game with Oaklands Wolves in Division One of the National Basketball League today, before visiting Loughborough Riders in the L Lynch Trophy quarter-finals tomorrow.

The reason for the inverted commas is because Bradford’s home venue in the city is currently unavailable, as it is being used as a Covid testing centre.

They have arranged to train at Calderdale College for now, but are not able to play there, meaning they have had to look further afield to play their home matches.

They have negotiated with the Nottingham Wildcats Arena to use that as their home venue, and have struck gold.

The club’s senior media, marketing, development and communications executive, Simon Carter, has confirmed that the Oaklands clash will be played there.

Asked how long Bradford can expect to play home games there for, Carter added: “That’s a tough one to gauge really, as there are so many unknown factors at the moment.

“However, plans are in place to use the Nottingham Wildcats Arena as our home venue for the rest of the season, should we need to.”

Bradford have won three of their four league games so far.

The L Lynch Trophy clash with Loughborough tomorrow had to be rescheduled, with Covid-19 issues marring the tournament so far.

Bradford won two of their three group games, against Myerscough and Team Newcastle University, to reach the last eight.
