The competition will be played in the Garden City for the first time after organizers decided to give burgeoning talents in the other regions the chance to showcase their prowess.
The eight participating communities underwent a successful screening exercise last weekend at the Kumasi Anglican Senior High School and are in lighthearted mood ahead of the crunch qualifier.
Communities such as Asokwa, Kwadaso, Bukom, Krofrom, Bantama, Asem, Toase and Dichemso will step up onto the court to fight for qualification to the grand finale in Accra on September 1.
For the time the age bracket has been reduced from 18-15 and therefore raises questions as to the quality of the players that can emerge from the country’s second largest city.
But if the performances of players at the senior high level over the past three years is anything to go by, then fans should brace themselves for a fine display from the very ‘hungry’ youngsters in their pursuit of making a name for themselves and their respective communities.
Surely the major ingredient including revenge, rivalry, dominance, tension, excitements, anguish, disappointment and nervous moments will all be on display at the venue of the competition – the Kumasi Anglican Senior High School on Saturday July 28.
