Found this on the NBL site. So it's not my own, just posting to share the news.


The church will be the site of the new offices of Southside Group Ltd. The development firm is currently located at 358 Horton St. E.

The church has a gym facility at the back of the building and Frijia plans to make it a private practice facility for the Lightning. The Lightning are believed to be the only team in the NBL now that own their own practice facility.

"I am looking to buy a few homes so I can house players when they are here," Frijia says. "When the players aren't here then my staff can look after the homes."

Great owner, the class of the league by far. AND a church is finally being put to good use. :p

He is definitely doing things well in London and has the money to back up a lot of his plans.

That said, I am not going to call an owner "the class of the league" after he tried to get me and a group of other fans ejected from a game when his team were the visitors because he didn't like the fact that his team was losing. It was pretty pathetic on his part.
