The South West Under 17 Girls, under Head Coach Carlos Moreira, achieved 2nd place in the 2017 Regional Development Tournament, which is the highest position recorded by a South West team since the introduction of this competition.  Defeating traditional basketball strongholds London, East and South East en route, the team pulled up just short in the final 46-50 against champions North West.

The age group for the 2018 programme would be players born in the calendar years 2001 and 2002.

The future and format of this is currently under review, and details will be announced as soon as possible.
