Qualifiers for the next edition of Sprite Ball in Ghana’s Central Region have been moved to Tuesday, December 5.
The games were originally set to be honored on Thursday November 30 in the region’s capital, Cape-Coast.
The Robert Mensah Stadium will host teams that have progressed from the zonal games in the region and such teams have been handed a big boost ahead of qualifiers next month.
Due to the change in schedule, competing teams have more time to prepare for the games which decide schools that will represent the region in next year’s competition.
The change was announced by Regional Physical Education Coordinator Alfred Bonney during an interview on basketball television program “Courtside” on Kwese Free Sports.
Reigning national champion Wesley Girls High School and former winner Aggrey Memorial Mount Zion School headline the female division.
Former winners St. Augustine’s College and Mfantsipim School will compete in the male division with the likes of Adisadel College.
The Sprite Ball Championship is the most celebrated high school basketball competition in Ghana and the next edition tips off in January, 2018.
