Player Profile: Stella Nikolopoulou

How did you get into Basketball? 

Since before I can remember myself I have been involved into sports. I started with synchronized swimming and after 10 years of competitive sport I decided to try the sport my parents used to play. I instantly fell in love.


What is your most memorable moment from Basketball? 

This sport has given me so many memorable moments. The one I will never forget is Varsity 2015. We beat the University of Brighton clinching a win for the University of Sussex. The intensity, the crowd and the passion all my teammates showed on the court is something I will never forget. 


As a woman, what do you feel like you get from Basketball?

I don't even know where to begin. Basketball has helped me so much, for instance by building my confidence and my self-esteem. In this sport I have met the most amazing people. My team is my family!


What would you say to a woman who was thinking about joining Basketball?

Do it! You will have not experienced enjoyment until you are on the court.


This week is "This Sussex Girl Can Week" where we are celebrating women in sports with a number of different events and activities on campus. To find out more, visit the Sussexsport website.
