The local men’s basketball league will be off and running next month.
The national senior men’s basketball league is set to being around the end of March. The league will be comprised of teams in two divisions (A and B), with the majority being in the A section.
Last year’s league saw nine teams in the A division and four in the B division.
National Coach Victor ‘Voot’ O’Garro says he expects a lot of participation and might have to limit the amount of teams.
‘This year we might have to cut off the A division at ten teams. We’re aiming for ten A teams and six or more B teams.
‘Local basketball is definitely growing and catching on with many [young] people.’
As a result, interested players are urged to register early, especially if they want to get into the A division. The deadline for registration into either division of the league is expected to be three weeks before the league starts.
