Bermuda's Female Athlete of the Year Jenaya Wade-Fray and her Great Britain Women's Basketball team-mates will take on the USA this summer.

Reigning Olympic champions, USA, will also play the GB men's side in Manchester it was announced this week.

With the Great Britain national teams recently securing a place in the London 2012 Olympic Games, the men's and women's teams will play their USA Basketball counterparts in two friendly games at the 18,100 seat Manchester Evening News Arena (MEN) in July prior to the Olympic tournament.

The Great Britain national teams have made significant strides in recent years with GB men qualifying for two consecutive Eurobasket tournaments (2009 and 2011) and GB women qualifying for Eurobasket 2011 for the first time in team history.

The USA Basketball men's and women's national squads from which the current Olympic and World championship teams were selected include NBA All-Stars Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James, and WNBA standouts Sue Bird, Angel McCoughtry and Diana Taurasi.
