GABF launches lucrative club tournament
In an effort to reignite the basketball flame, the Guyana Amateur Basketball Federation (GABF) on Friday launched what is billed to be the nation’s biggest basketball tournament.
Dubbed “The Road to Mecca’, the competition which was launched at Duke Lodge will see the premier clubs vying for the first prize of $800,000 when it bounces off on March 1 at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
President of the federation, Nigel Hinds said at the launch that the event was the brainchild of Vice President, Michael Singh. He also disclosed that the GABF will be leaving no stone unturned in order to restore the hype for the sport.
