This year’s Sprite Ball Central Regional qualifiers will take place on Tuesday December 5 with the one day competition set to select the region’s top teams for the celebrated high school games.

Originally, qualifiers in the region were ue to be played on Thursday November 30 at the Robert Mensah Stadium in the region capital, Cape-Coast.

Ghana Education Service Central Regional Physical Education Coordinator Albert Bonney broke the news in an interview on basketball television show “Courtside”.

Bonney made it known a few matters needed to be cleared before the games could take place successfully.

Ghana’s Central Region is the outright best performer in the competition since it began in 2007 with the region producing as many as four national championship winning schools.

St. Augustine’s College, Mfantsipim School have won the national title at least once in the boys division while reigning Champions Wesley Girls High School and Aggrey Memorial Mount Zion have won the female division at twice.

This year’s competition will feature the quartet including the likes of Mfantsiman Girls, Holy Child School and Adisadel College.

Courtside airs on Ghana channel KweseFree Sports on Sundays from 16:00 to 18:00 GMT.
