Free State, South Africa – Sasol and NWU Vaal are hosting their annual Junior Basketball Tournament from 12 – 14 July 2019 at the Harry Gwala Multipurpose Sport Centre in Zamdela, Metsimaholo.
There are sides travelling to Metsimaholo from as far as Limpopo, and even a team from Mozambique will form part of the eight girls’ teams battling it out for the trophy. Among the 20 boys’ teams, competition is expected to be as strong.
