Basketball Association (GBBA) Vice President-Administration Alex Kukula has stated the upcoming Sprite Ball Xpressions fits perfectly well in the Association’s plans to build Ghana’s Basketball teams from the ground up.
He made this statement in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com at the launch of the 2021 Sprite Ball Xpressions. The famous Sprite Ball Championship is now officially known as Sprite Ball Xpressions due to the addition of music to the core basketball program.
Asked how the celebrated competition fits in with the plans of the new GBBA, Kukula stated:
“This (Sprite Ball Xpressions) fits in excellently. This is a vehicle that is already there and smoothened. We (GBBA) think we don’t have to reinvent anything we just have to get on board and whatever enhancements we can bring to it for it to be bigger and more effective.”
Each of the six regions-Western, Volta, Central, Ashanti, Eastern, Greater Accra-will have a representative at the national competition on December 24 at the Aviation Social Center in Ghana’s capital, Accra.
Four community based teams will compete at the regional levels and the top players will get selected to the regional team for the national competition.
