You can see some of the country’s top youngsters in action next week when the annual Haris Memorial Tournament gets under way at the Amaechi Basketball Centre.
The national teams of England and Ireland will both be presented in the Under-18 competition, alongside City of Edinburgh, Derby Trailblazers, Sligo All Stars and Manchester Magic.
Worcester Academy will attempt to make it three straight wins for teams from the United States, with Malaga’s Nova School completing the eight-team line-up.
The prestigious tournament is in its 11th year and remembers Haris Charalambous, a former Manchester Magic youth player who died tragically in 2006.
The action begins on Tuesday, 27 December at 6pm and finishes with the final at 5.30pm on Thursday, 29 December. See the website for a full schedule of matches.
A ticket to watch all three days of action is just £10, otherwise it is £3 for Tuesday, £4 for Wednesday and £5 for Thursday. Pay on the door.
