  12. There will be no warming up with basketballs within the Rec Centre due to limited space. You will be able to warm up/practise on the outdoor half court.


Competitions: Boys and Girls tournaments will be played separately. Girls are permitted to play within a ‘Boys’ team if needed to make up numbers but they will compete as a ‘Boys’ team in the Boys competition. Each school can enter one team in each competition.

Format: The Basketball tournament has separate boys and girls competitions. They will play round robin games in pools, the results of which will give seeding for a knockout round resulting in overall placings. Get your draws here

Equipment: Match balls will be supplied. Schools are asked not to bring additional balls into the centre due to the lack of space available and the disruption caused by large numbers of balls in the small space.
