Haris Tournament

Line-up confirmed for 2017 Haris Tournament

England Under 18s head the line-up for the 2017 Haris Memorial Tournament, which will run from 27-29 December at the Amaechi Basketball Centre in Manchester.

They will be joined by CB Novaschool Malaga (Spain), Værløse Basketball Club (Denmark), Elite Academy Antwerp (Belgium) and English basketball academies Charnwood College Riders and Myerscough College.

Completing the line-up are Manchester Magic’s U18 and U16 sides.

The eight teams will be split into two groups, with the two top progressing to the semi-finals.

The three-day event, now in its 12th year, is held annually and was founded in 2006 to remember Haris Charalambous, one of the top players to come out of the Magic programme.

Haris died suddenly while training with his NCAA Division 1 Toledo University team in October 2006.

The tournament will also have a new logo for 2017 as we look to raise the profile of one of the top junior events in Great Britain.

We think it’s a great addition to what is a truly fantastic competition.

You can buy a £10 ticket that covers all three days of the tournament.

Alternatively, you can pay for each day: £3 (27th), £4 (28th) and £5 (29th).

To book Tickets in advance call 0161 881 0090.
