Don’t look any further for tickets to watch this semi-final first leg of the Women’s Basketball League. It’s a gala match this Thursday evening at the Quai de l’Adour in Tarbes, which will be sold out. The Tarbaises, who eliminated Bourges in the quarter-finalfind Basket Landes, for a two-match derby, with a place in the championship final at stake. “We set ourselves the sporting objective of being at least seventh (at the end of the regular season), explains Laurent Cochain. We got there, we obviously did better than that. So whatever happens is a bonus.

Last year, Laurent Cochain struggled to complete his budget, after launching a collection and meetings. A little more than 200,000 euros were missing. Today is in the past. The club’s finances are healthy. “Without results, it’s complicated. With results, things get betterrecognizes the deputy president of the TGB, who saw the arrival of a new partner, in the presence of the new president, Jeannie Cointre.

The Quai de l’Adour is full. At each match, we would have 200 or 300 places. Probably it would be full again. And then indeed, we have the loyal support of our audience, from our institutional and private partners. And we see today that there is indeed an attraction around this club“welcomes Laurent Cochain.”We have been focusing on youth for several years, and on a Franco-French team. It’s been two seasons. This is the DNA of the club since many players have left and returned to TGB. I will name Isabelle Yacoubou to take this emblematic example. But we continue to bet on youth.

TGB / Basket Landes, this Thursday evening, at 7 p.m., to live in full listening to France Bleu Béarn Bigorre
