The Wheelchair basketball event taking place at this year’s Ghana National Sports Festival is set to conclude on Wednesday September 6 according to Federation Media Coodinator Sandy Asiedu.

The competition began on Saturday September 2 at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology’s Main Court with a tie between home side Ashanti Region and Greater Accra Region with the latter winning 35-10.

Asiedu made the statement when he spoke on top basketball show “Courtside” recently; he was contacted for updates on the competition in Kumasi.

After dishing results from the preliminary rounds, the basketball analyst stated the final rounds of the event will be cleared early this week and winners will be declared.

After recording two straight wins, Greater Accra Region looks poised to feature in the latter stages of the competition.

The competition is a very important exercise since players will be selected to the national team to compete in Africa’s World Cup qualifiers in November.

Ghana is set to compete for a place in the 2018 Wheelchair Basketball World Cup in Germany; the African qualifiers will be played from November 17 to November 26.
