Merimbula basketball hosts exciting cup weekend | Photos

The annual Merimbula Mitre 10 Basketball Cup was held in Merimbula on November 3-4.

Visiting clubs included Orbost and Cooma with over 400 players participating in the tournament.

For the first time games were scheduled over two days. There was some fierce and exciting competition displayed during the games, in particular the final men’s game which ended up being the decider to see which club would take home the Cup.

Luckily the Sharks came away with the win!

“It was wonderful to see all our kids have the opportunity to play representative basketball in our home town and we were very thankful that the weather was nice,” organisers said.
