About Tony McGaharan
Tony started playing basketball when he was 11, after realising that he couldn’t kick a ball. Enjoying every opportunity to be around the game, Tony has been a player, scorekeeper, referee, coach and MC. In 2009, he coached women's basketball in Sweden for a season with the Umeå Comets (now bought over by Udominate). He then returned home and worked with PeacePlayers International, which uses the game to bring young people together from divided communities. Tony has since taken on a role in Google and has worked in Dublin and Singapore. He is now based out of London, playing for a local London D2 team, the United Nations Basketball Club.
