The Merimbula Sharks Basketball Club will host the Merimbula Cup this weekend.

Officials are eager to welcome clubs from orbost, cooma and Canberra who are coming to compete in this annual event.

Tip off is from 8am on Sunday and runs all day.

Club officials said there would be a community barbecue and full canteen running on the day with spectators very welcome to check out the competition.

"It's going to be an awesome day," a spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman said the annual fixture would be a wonderful highlight following strong regular competition rounds, but also rep outfits in training.

"Both our boys and girls rep teams have been training hard from the under 10s right through to the men's and ladies open groups to make this a memorable day," she said.

She said coaches and club officials had also been working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the weekend would be a spectacular day for locals, visitors and spectators.

In the regular competition, last week's games went ahead with poor weather holding off long enough on Friday night and Saturday morning.
