BASKETBALL: LETTERKENNY BLAZE TO HOST U18 MEN’S NATIONAL CUP QUALIFIERS

first_imgBlaze U18s men’s team.This weekend sees Letterkenny Blaze Basketball Club host one of four qualifying tournaments in this years Basketball Ireland’s U18 Men’s Hula Hoop National Cup.The tournament will be played in An Dánlann, LYIT Sports Centre from 9.00 both mornings and games will go on into late on Saturday evening. There will be refreshments available to purchase at the gym with the onsite catering company looking after this.Seven teams from all over the country St Brendan’s BC Tralee, St Mary’s BC Castleisland, Neptune BC Cork, Killester BC Dublin, Titans BC Galway and old rivals Belfast Star BC along with our own U18 Men’s team will battle it out for a place in the quarter finals of this competition.The pedigree of the participating teams will give spectators the opportunity to view the high standard of basketball being played at this level around the country. There has been a huge resurgence of the game over the last number of years with Basketball Ireland working hard under extremely difficult circumstances to grow the sport again to what it was back in the golden era of the 1980/90’s. There are now many Irish teenagers attending elite academies, prep schools in America and others on scholarships at Division one colleges in the US as the sport continues to grow.We ask our basketball community to ensure they take their junior ballers over to An Dánlann at some time over the weekend to watch some of the games. This weekend presents such a wonderful opportunity for them to watch how they too can develop their skills and game as they get older. Obviously everyone is welcome to drop in, there is no admission fee.Our U18 girls are also participating this year with their host venue being that of Ulster Elks Basketball at University of Ulster, Jordanstown on the same weekend. Their pool is a little smaller with teams from Oblate BC Dublin, Carraig na bhFear Rebels BC Cork, Ulster Elks BC, Tralee Imperials BC and Portlaoise Panthers BC at the venue. Again a really high standard of basketball will be seen. The first game in UUJ is at 10.00am on 7 Nov with Blaze V Carraig na bhFear Rebels.The Blaze U18 ladies team.BASKETBALL: LETTERKENNY BLAZE TO HOST U18 MEN’S NATIONAL CUP QUALIFIERS was last modified: November 5th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Blaze Basketballletterkennylast_img
