While Worcester Wolves will be delighted to have got back on the winning trail with a decisive victory at Glasgow Rocks last Sunday, they would not be averse to the presence of a superhero or two when they return to the University of Worcester Arena this week.

Surrey United will be the next opposition to play in front of a big crowd at Wolves’ new home venue, and the Worcester club is keen to maintain the off-court entertainment for all those spectators, this Friday evening.

New game night announcers, a new light show, energetic cheerleaders and popular mascot Wolfie are just some of the attractions that these days accompany the on-court action. In addition, in support of the BBC’s Children in Need Appeal, this week the Wolves are asking fans to come along dressed as their favourite superheroes.

Wolves’ Marketing Officer Clare Jenkins is excited about what the club has planned for Friday, saying: “We’ve set up the evening to tie in with the ‘Be a Hero’ theme that the BBC are running for the appeal this year. As well as all the usual stuff that we have taking place at every game, we’ll have a half-time display by a fabulous children’s gymnastics group, there’ll be a guess the name of the cuddly wolf competition, and, of course, the crowning glory of the night will be our awarding of prizes for the superest of the superheroes!”

Doors open on Friday at 6.30, with the match tipping off an hour later. Advance tickets can be purchased by visiting the Wolves’ website:
