Cameron's basketball biography:

I grew up in Canada and first experienced basketball through school teams, community recreational leagues, and residential summer camps. Attending the legendary Dick Baumgartner Shooting Camp in Indiana at 16 forever changed my shooting accuracy, and a tough-as-nails coach in high school inspired my competitive spirit and ardent work ethic.

I played for two years at the post-secondary level, before taking a break from competitive basketball whilst finishing my degrees.

After university, I travelled to Japan to teach. I spent my free time competing in the top tier of the amateur basketball league. We won Gold and Silver in my two years with the team, competing in national tournaments in Okinawa and Tokyo.

I then moved to the UK to focus on my teaching career. Years ago, I played for the Cambridge Cougars competing in the Cambridgeshire League and Hertfordshire League. I now play recreationally at sessions in the city when time and opportunity permit.

Cezary's basketball biography:

My dad introduced me to basketball after a failed try-out for a youth football team in my hometown, Gdańsk. I was seven years old back then and haven’t looked back since. I got the privilege of learning to play under some great coaches as I progressed through a plethora of junior teams (10–18 years of age), with much success at both regional and national levels in Poland. At the age of 19, I had to choose whether to try my luck in playing professionally or leave to study abroad. I chose the latter, which began a new basketball journey. Between 2006 and 2009 I played for University College London, including serving as President of the Men’s Basketball Club for two years, before playing for Cardiff University in Wales during my Master’s degree.

After moving to Cambridge, I played in the University College League, first captaining the WT/CRUK Gurdon Institute, finishing top of the league in three consecutive seasons; and, more recently, Wolfson College, winning the Cuppers competition in 2022. I have played for the Cambourne Raptors Men’s Senior team since 2018 and was given the team’s MVP award in 2019 and 2020.

My passion for the game remains as strong as ever, which is why I’m currently training to become a Level 2 coach. As my friends know (probably all too well), I’m a devout supporter of the Boston Celtics. Having enjoyed playing basketball for nearly 30 years, I feel it’s now time for me to give back to the game and inspire the next generations. I look forward to sharing my knowledge, experience and passion with the Fastbreak Basketball community!

Dominik's basketball biography:

I love to watch and play the game. Basketball is a very entertaining sport and can be played by anyone. Some of the most vivid memories I have from my childhood were soundtracked by a song called “Sirius” by the Alan Parsons Project rock band. “Sirius” is the intro tune for the Chicago Bulls basketball team. I was lucky to be of an age where I witnessed the Bulls play in 90s. This is when I started playing basketball. I played for my school teams throughout my secondary and high school years. I still enjoy playing basketball and making new friends on the court. During the free time, I coach my son at basketball and spend time with my family.

Prof. Nebojša Radić (Neb) - Coach


Neb is a Basketball England Level 2 coach. Following his promotion to a professorship at Cambridge University, Neb has become too busy professionally, hence he will not be able to help with our NL teams. Yet, he is still happy to act as a consultant to pass on his wealth of knowledge to our coaches and players when possible. He will be helping as a consultant to our coaches where needed in the 2024 season.

Neb's basketball biography:

I started to play basketball many years ago, in 1970 when my country, Yugoslavia won its first world championship. I was ten at the time and went out in the street to play. Everyone did. Very soon I joined BASK, one of the oldest sport clubs in Belgrade. I went through their junior programmes (12-18 yrs of age) and then continued to play for their first team (1978-1991). At the peak of our success, we played in the second, professional (we could say today) Yugoslav division. Those were the 80s and the first Yugoslav division was by far the best league in the world, outside of the American NBA. From 1985 to 1992 Yugoslav clubs won all of the European championships but one - and all of that without American or any other imports or players older than 27 years. In this socialist country, local players were not allowed to go and play abroad before age 27. And no one needed imports because they produced very good local players. So, the second division was pretty good.

In 1989 I was on a Yugoslav selection team that toured New Zealand. We went there without any training but did manage to beat, among others, the local national team in Wellington.

In 1991 I moved to New Zealand for good. I played two seasons for the Nelson Suns and started coaching. I then moved to Auckland in 1994 and set up a team with  a bunch of ex-Yugoslav players from all parts of the war torn country. We played the local social league against all professional players in the area, including American imports, and were quite successful.

I was an academic in Auckland and received an offer to come to Cambridge. I accepted the offer and since 2001 I have been an Associate Professor and the Director of the University of Cambridge Language Programmes.

Since 2002 I have also been coaching the University men’s basketball team. I also played Maxi-basketball tournaments for the over 40s, then 50s, then… we won a couple of British championship and I also played at one over 50s World Championship.

I have three sons. The two big ones play(ed) rugby. The youngest one, Marko (now 16), played rugby since the age of 5 but decided to switch to basketball. I welcomed the spirit and positive vibe! He joined the Raptors Basketball Club (now the Falcons) and that's how I got involved in the club. I felt that with my experience, knowledge and passion I could contribute to the development of the team, the individual players and the club as a whole. 

Looking forward to seeing you all and to some great basketballing times in and around Cambourne.

Walid Ben Romdhane- Advanced Individual and Team Skills Instructor 


Walid is a Level 2 Club Coach. He has a wealth of playing experience and has volunteered to transfer his knowledge to his local community. In 2024 season, he will be running our advanced technical skills sessions from September.

Walid's basketball biography:

I grew up in Tunisia and started playing basketball when I was 9 years old. My dad is a football coach so I grew up with a coaching mindset.

I played competitively in a national level club and we won the Tunisia Junior championship twice.

I played in Wessex League D1 2017-2019 and we were runners up twice in the playoffs.

Basketball is a very fun game to play. I learned a lot from it as a player, not only on the court, but off the court as well. It taught me how to be a better human being, to care about the feelings of teammates, to control my emotions in difficult situations, to be patient, to push myself to the limit and to think before acting.

I'm looking forward to learning more about the game as a coach.

Efe's basketball biography:

I started playing basketball when I was 8 years old, back in 1998 at a local youth club. I continued playing for my school throughout my secondary and high school where we won the domestic league and came 3rd in the national league. Whilst in high school, I joined a local team who was competing in the senior league in Northern Cyprus. I continued playing in the local team, semi-professionally until I went to university. At that point I got transferred to the university team and played both in the university league and the professional basketball league. We won the university league and finished 4th in the professional league. That same year I was called up to the North Cyprus U-21 national team and played in a summer cup tournament. I then moved to the UK to continue my university study and started playing for University of Bath. I played for two years before I had a herniated disc injury, which took me out of the game. I started coaching when I moved to Northstowe and have enjoyed my experience so far. It gives me an opportunity to share what I have learnt throughout the years, make Northstowe area players better and improve the quality and interest of basketball in the UK overall.
