Last week, from October 2nd to 5th, the third NBA Academy India Women's Camp was held in Mumbai at the American School of Bombay.
While taking part in the camp, the girls also took part in an NBA Cares clinic with select players from the Sacramento Kings and the Indiana Pacers. They also got a chance to meet players from both teams - the Kings and Pacers - and sit courtside during the team's practice sessions (open and close).
The two previous editions of the NBA Academy India Women's camps were conducted in May 2018 and January 2019 at the NBA Academy India premises - Jaypee Greens Integrated Sports Complex in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR).
Here's a look at the awardees from the recently held Women's Camp:
Rajvi Desai - Defensive player
Kaavya Singla - Most improved player
Ann Mary Zachariah - Coaches award
