BASKETBALLERS will hit the court en masse this Sunday for a Midday Madness tournament.

The day of on-court action runs from 10am to 9pm and features gaming zones, coaching clinics, prizes, giveaways and DJs.

The event is free and will be held at the Mountbatten Centre in Stamshaw.

Midday Madness chief executive Nhamo Shire said it is the 15th year the event had been held.

He said the anniversary was a testament to the class of basketballers in the UK.

‘The competition gets tougher year on year and in response, the calibre of the players just seems to rise to meet it,’ said Mr Shire.

‘This is why we aim to have such a level playing field in the tournament. Wherever you’re coming from, street to elite, you’re truly given an equal opportunity to bring your A game. Everyone gets the same opportunity to win.’

There will be games in three divisions for players aged from 14 to adults.
