It’s a big weekend coming up for junior basketball in Naracoorte with the annual junior basketball tournament on February 24-25.
Under 12, 14, 16 and 18 teams from Naracoorte, Mt Gambier, Millicent, Bordertown, Keith, Portland, Casterton, Great Southern, Port Fairy, Murray Bridge and Horsham will be represented by a total of 72 teams across 164 games in Naracoorte, Lucindale and Penola.
The local tournament has grown year after year to the point where after the success of using Lucindale’s court last year, organisers have expanded to Penola as well to fit a record number of teams in this year .
As always, local business sponsorship has played a massive part in helping the Naracoorte and District Basketball Association be able to host the tournament, so please keep an eye out for sponsor signage at the stadiums and brochures and support the businesses that support us.
Games will be played from 7.30am Saturday until 8.40pm Saturday and then again on Sunday morning through until all grand finals being finished by about 6pm Sunday.
There will be a barbecue running all weekend at the main stadium along with the stadium canteen providing delicious food, icecreams, sweets and ice cold drinks, and of course our sponsors and eateries that will be open in town across the weekend.
This is our biggest weekend of the year and a huge thankyou to the small army of volunteers, committees, coaches, managers, parents and most importantly all of the junior superstars who will be giving their all for their respective towns.
It will be a terrific weekend of junior basketball so come on down to one of our venues, Naracoorte Stadium, Naracoorte High School, Naracoorte South Primary School, Lucindale Area School and Penola Stadium and support the region’s junior basketballers.
