The Ministry of Sports and the National Sports Council today announced the launching of the National Basket Ball Competition. The tournament will begin in June and will consist of three categories for both male and female athletes. Minister of Youth and Sports, Rodwell Ferguson spoke about the importance of the event.

Director of the National Sports Council, Ian Cal says the tournament will serve as a pilot project for similar events that the council is planning to hold with other sporting disciplines.

The prize for the open category is ten thousand dollars while the winners of the youth categories will vie for a spot in the national finals where they can each win a full one-year scholarship. The tournament will cost an estimated two hundred and fifty thousand dollars.
