Eastern Bay Basketball Leagues
Monday, June 10, 2013
Through the help of Sport Bay of Plenty’s Kiwisport funding, 33 basketball teams of all ages are heading to the War Memorial Hall in Whakatane on Monday nights to hoop it up over the next nine weeks. The Eastern Bay Basketball Leagues are made up of player of all ages, primary school through to adult teams.
The KiwiSport funding has meant the leagues could buy the required equipment, such as clocks, score boards, bibs and whistles, needed to run a successful league.
BayTrust CoachForce Officer Andy Mackay says, “It’s awesome to see the college and adult leagues aligning with the junior grades and all the volunteers helping each other to run a successful night of basketball. We have a coach and player clinic organised so the development can continue in the Eastern Bay”.
